Cornish Diet campaign launched

PRESS RELEASE
For immediate release – 14th August 2009

MEBYON KERNOW LAUNCH CORNISH DIET CAMPAIGN

The North Cornwall branch of Mebyon Kernow - the Party for Cornwall launched the Cornish Diet Campaign at the Camelford Show on Wednesday 12th August.

As a part of a ‘Living Communities’ theme, the Cornish Diet calls for 80% of all food served on Cornwall Council owned or run premises to come from Cornwall by 2012. This would include a clear long-term development path so that growers and producers can find and access potential future markets in the public sector.

The campaign is being spearheaded by Joanie Willett, the Mebyon Kernow prospective parliamentary candidate for North Cornwall. She said:
“A lot of emphasis has been placed on getting individuals to buy locally, but it’s time that the public sector got on board too. Cornwall Council is ideally placed to lead the way. All schools and Council offices should source their food from Cornwall. We want a commitment from Cornwall Council that they will do this by 2012.”

Activist Doug Johnson added: “Using local produce is better for the economy, better for our communities and better for the environment. We have many food producers in Cornwall, that are essential for living communities. We need to be supporting our food producers, helping to make Cornwall a better place for everyone.”

LIVING COMMUNITIES

Cornish Diet Campaign

WE WANT CORNWALL COUNCIL TO ADOPT A CORNISH DIET.

SIGN OUR PETITION TO (Neil Plummer, Strategic Planning Committee)

Dear Councilor Plummer

· Please support the campaign for a Cornish Diet, sourcing 80% of food served in Cornwall Council run organizations to come from Cornwall by 2012

· A Cornwall Council policy with a clear long term development path enabling local growers and producers to find and access potential future markets in the public sector

Agriculture and food production helps to sustain living communities in many ways

· Providing jobs
· Contributing to the local economy
· People that are committed to and active in their local communities
· Managing the landscape

Eating local produce is…

· BETTER FOR THE ECONOMY

Every £1 spent on local produce generates £2.56 in the local economy

Every £1 spent in a supermarket only generates £1.40 in the local economy

· BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Consuming local produce reduces our Carbon Footprint and helps towards our food and energy security

· BETTER FOR COMMUNITIES

Supporting our farmers helps to develop stable communities, with people that care about their local area

We are calling for

· Council Offices and Schools to get 80% of all food served on premises to come from Cornwall by 2012

· A Cornwall Council policy with a clear long term development path so growers and producers can find and access potential future markets in the public sector
