Local Food Ecosystems

Local Food Ecosystems

The Lincolnshire Food Partnership are working with the founder of Cambridge Food Hub and author of Local Food Ecosystems, Duncan Catchpole, to explore the development of a local food ecosystem in Lincolnshire.

“The ‘Local Food Ecosystem’ is a new concept in food supply chain coordination which conforms to a new and more forward-thinking economic model.

It is founded upon principles such as balance, wholeness, circularity, diversity and interconnectivity, resulting in a food system which is less wasteful, more equitable, much kinder to our planet, much better for citizens in terms of the quality and healthiness of the food we get to eat, which nurtures food entrepreneurism to create vibrant local food economies, and which is, in every sense of the word, sustainable.”

Local food producers and independent food businesses – including farmers, growers, producers, caterers, restaurant & cafe owners, specialist food retailers, chefs and bakers – can apply for a FREE place here.

Find out more about Local Food Ecosystems by reading Duncan’s book. All proceeds from the sale of books on this website (which is everything above £5 for physical copies, and the entire sale value of audio copies) will go towards developing a local food ecosystem in Lincolnshire. Please select Lincoln Food Hub from the drop down menu at checkout. https://localfoodecosystem.co.uk/
