SUSTAINABLE FOOD & DRINK GROUP
The group’s focus is about food and drink that is good for us and good for the environment; food that does not cost the earth.
The group is interested in promoting a sustainable food and drink culture in the Bradford on Avon Community Area, and beyond. It’s a forum for exploring the issues, ideas and information, raising awareness, encouraging networking, and supporting environmentally friendly practice and initiatives in the food chain. We would like to be confident that all food and drink is produced to high environmental and ethical standards.
If you feel you would like be involved or help the Sustainable Food & Drink Group in any way please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
