20Mar2012: Making Local Food Our Future

Across the country people are making a future for local food through their community. Making Local Food Our Future is a national conference which will bring together the innovators, drivers and investors in the community food sector, to show how they are making a real impact by joining together and working collaboratively.

We all have something to contribute to the future stability of the food system. Making Local Food Our Future will be your opportunity to be inspired by real examples, to connect with the key stakeholders and to find out how to do it in your own community.

We are thrilled to announce Professor Tim Lang, Centre for Food Policy, City University, London, as one of our key speakers. Tim will frame the work that communities are doing with local food in the wider food policy debate and highlight the vast potential that lies in working collaboratively.

Making Local Food Our Future also marks the culmination of five years of Making Local Food Work, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, which has helped over 1,000 enterprises – and over 2 million consumers – reconnect with local food through community food enterprises. It will see Peter Couchman, Chief Executive of Plunkett Foundation, Ed Mayo, Secretary General of Co-operatives UK and Peter Wanless, Big Lottery Fund’s Chief Executive at what will be a must-attend event for anyone interested in the future of community food.

Peter Couchman, Plunkett Foundation’s Chief Executive and Director of Making Local Food Work, said: “There is a challenging but exciting future for local food. This event will bring together a range of leading individuals, organizations and community food enterprises who want to be part of an enterprising future and want to have a role in shaping its direction.”

Professor Lang was a founding member of the London Food Commission in the 1980s, which conducted groundbreaking work on issues such as food additives and the effect of food poverty among those on low incomes. Coining the term ‘food miles’ to refer to the distance our food travels before it reaches our plates, his work made a major contribution to the Food Safety Act of 1990 and the creation of the Food Standards Agency in 2000. In 2007 he was inducted into the Observer Food Monthly’s Hall of Fame.

Also speaking at the event is Pamela Warhurst CBE, chair and founding member of Incredible Edible Todmorden, a pioneering local food partnership in West Yorkshire. She is also Chair of the Forestry Commission, regeneration company Pennine Prospects and has also been Deputy Chair of the Countryside Agency. She was awarded CBE in 2005 for services to the environment.
