The Sustainable Production & Supply of Food Challenge- online briefing event
18 October 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Cardiff Council in collaboration with Monmouthshire County Council are seeking to identify and support projects to develop innovative solutions which can significantly improve the sustainable production and supply of food. The Challenge looks for applicants to harness the potential of land, technology and people to increase the sustainable production and supply of locally grown food in the Cardiff Capital Region. The Challenge requires applicants to clearly demonstrate:
- Problem 1: how they will increase the sustainable production of food in the region and generate positive economic, social and environmental impacts.
- Problem 2: how they will increase supply of nutritious, locally grown food whilst ensuring a fair price for producers and the wellbeing of future generations.
We are interested in receiving applications that address both problems and would encourage partnerships between applicants to realise this. However, we may consider solutions that address one of the problems if it is clearly justified and supported by sound evidence to be an innovative and pragmatic solution.
We are interested in sustainable food production and supply chain solutions which can be applied to the public sector (e.g., school meal provision, NHS meals), the private and third sector to maximise commercial opportunities.
Cardiff Council in partnership with Monmouthshire County Council are delivering this project with funding from the Cardiff Capital Region Challenge Fund and Welsh Government and supported by the SBRI Centre of Excellence.
This is an online event and the link to join will be sent to registered attendees a few days before the event. Join us at the event to hear more about the challenge or click here to read the full Challenge Brief and apply: https://sdi.click/spsf1
