Thinking of starting up or running a sustainable food business, this event could be right up your street…
Did you know that food today is less nutritious than it was in the 1940s, with fruit and vegetables containing 15% less Vitamin C? And that nearly half of us have changed our diets in the past year because of environmental or animal welfare concerns? Building sustainable food companies is not only one of the most essential challenges of our time, but also a great business opportunity.
Ten years ago, Brighton & Hove was one of the first cities in the UK to take a citywide, strategic approach to food issues. Now there is an opportunity to take the lead again, in building a food system that is fit for the 21st century, through farming, wholesale production and labelling, the service industry and more.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, grab a ticket to this event and join like-minded people over lunch for talks on sustainability and the future of food with Craig Sams, co-founder of Green and Blacks chocolate, and Andrew Stephen, CEO of the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
Curated by the University of Brighton’s Green Growth Platform, ‘Sustainable Food – Meeting the Challenge’, to be hosted at Silo in Brighton, is must for any business that wants to offer original and affordable food that is produced, processed, and distributed in ways that are good for nature, good for human health, good for animal welfare, and good for local businesses.
