Edible Edinburgh Sustainable Food City Plan 2014-2020


As a follow-up to the Sustainable Edinburgh 2020 framework, a cross-sectoral steering group of representatives from the public, private and third sectors has been established. The Sustainable Food City Plan of Edinburgh aims to make healthy and sustainable food available to all, particularly those living in food poverty. The focus on a more just food economy and on local food production and distribution has also an impact on the protection of the environment and natural resources by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  The community-led initiative sets out concrete objectives and actions to develop an innovative, integrated, just and engaging food strategy for the city.
