Event Description

Free event but advance booking is required so we know how many to cater for. Please go here to book.

The theme of this year’s Bristol Food Conference is “Signing up to Good Food!”. The Conference, sponsored by Bristol’s Food Policy Council, the first of its kind in the UK, will showcase the public launch of its city-wide Good Food charter as part of Bristol’s Big Green Week.

As the charter states: “Bristol Good Food is the key message of the Bristol Food Policy Council. We believe good food is vital to the quality of people’s lives in Bristol. As well as being tasty, healthy and affordable, the food we eat should be good for nature, good for workers, good for local businesses and good for animal welfare.”

The programme, which will be chaired by Kevin Morgan of Cardiff University, will feature keynotes from:
-Helen Nilsson from Malmo, Sweden, on the revolutionary changes that have been made to public food procurement there,
-Dr. Gabriel Scally, former Regional Director of Public Health for the Southwest, on what good food can mean for our health as a city,
-and three Bristol-based speakers presenting their stories of the realities of working in the local food system (and succeeding!)

Each keynote session will allow time for interaction and discussion with the speakers. There will be a world-class lunch from some of Bristol’s amazing selection of local caterers, along with opportunities for networking afterward.

A fully detailed programme will be appearing on the Bristol Food Policy Council website soon!
