Food policy

 

 

Why food policy is more important than ever?

 

Main course

Food systems are based on a complex interlinkage of stakeholders acting along the food chain, from food production to consumption, and via food transformation and distribution. Cities have a responsibility to engage all stakeholders, including NGOs and citizens, to co-create local food ecosystems addressing societal needs and enabling territorial cohesion. This includes the development of legal and economic frameworks and capacity-building to sustain such actions.

Exemplary city cases of Food Policy and Food Policy elements are:


  • Milan’s Urban food policy for an inclusive, integrated and sustainable development of cities, Italy
  • Bristol Food Policy Council, UK
  • Oslo’ MAJOBO grassroots network of local and organic food production and urban farming by citizens, spreading ideas, inspiration and information, Norway
  • Physical building for local food ecosystem in Caen at La Maison, France
  • Research on the local food ecosystem with Who feeds Bristol? in Bristol, UK
  • A University Degree for Local Food Policy Manager in Public Administration initiated by Mouans-Sartoux, France
  • ‘Playing’ with public procurement to increase local and organic products in school canteens while doubling the number of meals, in Torres Vedras, Portugal
  • Internal and external transversality for bees protection and promotion in Ljubljania, Slovenia
  • Looking for the right recipe to build a more participatory food governance in Mouans-Sartoux, France.
