D&G Sustainable Food Partnership

This regional network brings together stakeholders from all sectors related to food: farmers, growers, retailers, hospitality businesses, and policymakers. Together we are exploring how to ensure accessibility and affordability (otherwise known as food security) for local people while maintaining profitability for producers. We advocate for a nature-friendly approach that incorporates the best food production methods, some tried and tested over generations, others innovative and new. The partnership’s achievements include the delivery of Fork to Farm Dialogues at COP26, and the launch of the award-winning Southwest Scotland Regenerative Farming Network.

The list of partners involved in DGSFP give a great representation of how a wide range of organisations can successfully unite: Propagate, D&G Council, D&G Health & and Social Care Partnership, National Farmers Union Scotland, Eat SW Scotland, Scottish Land & Estates, D&G College, and Machars & Cree Valley Climate Action Network.
