Social enterprise as a catalyst for sustainable and healthy local food systems

Project Details


The aim of the project is to understand and promote the transformational role of social enterprises as pathways to the
expansion of inclusive, sustainable and healthy local food systems across the UK. We will explore how social enterprises
enable different forms of community engagement around food and wellbeing, how these can be scaled up and how they
can use scientific analysis of diet and food life-cycle assessment to assess their impacts.
