Organised by the Edible Edinburgh partnership and hosted by the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, this event will focus on the ways in which we can work together to make Edinburgh a truly sustainable food city.
This includes encouraging more local production, supply and opening up of local markets, promoting healthier and more sustainable eating, reducing food waste and packaging (especially single-use plastic) and reducing food miles and enhancing biodiversity.
Edible Edinburgh is a citywide partnership consisting of public, private and third sector organisations which are passionate about making Edinburgh a sustainable food city. Edinburgh recently achieved the Sustainable Food Cities Bronze Award. The award recognises and celebrates the success of towns and cities taking a joined up, holistic approach to food and who are achieving significant positive change on a range of food issues.
