We want to raise awareness of all the incredible local food growers, producers, retailers, cafes, restaurants, caterers and suppliers in Oxfordshire.LEARN MORE
What Oxford eats accounts for around a fifth of its total carbon emissions. The food system of the city is responsible for the equivalent of 380,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. To put that into context, this is twice the emissions arising from all of the cars in the city.
In a city that consumes nearly 130,000 tonnes of food a year, only 52% is sourced within the UK and a mere 1% comes from local sources.
We want to raise awareness of all the incredible local food growers, producers, retailers, cafes, restaurants, caterers and suppliers so that everyone in Oxfordshire can make an informed choice about where and how to access good food.
As consumers the power is in our shopping baskets; we can all make a choice about what we buy and how to spend our money to help reduce the carbon arising from our food.
These choices can help to lower the impact of food on our environment - not just carbon emissions, but energy and water consumption and its strain on natural ecosystems.BUY LOCAL PRODUCE
