Ensure fair and equal access to healthy, sustainable food
This regional collaboration brings together stakeholders from all sectors related to local 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. Our partnership supports 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 our current Action Plan features a Regenerative Farming Network which is growing every day across Scotland’s southwest.
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.
