Think Local – Local Food, Producers and the Environment

Thursday 18th October 2018, 6.30 – 9.30pm

Whilst Cheshire is known for its dairy production, there are also many farms that raise fruits and vegetables, and animal products of all kinds.  Cheshire has an extensive network across the region of expert food enterprises, producing and supplying food to supermarkets, farmers markets and other outlets. Cheshire farmers and producers are dedicated to stewardship and committed to quality. There is a growing demand to marry up consumers that value fresh, local and seasonal food and the regional working landscape.

Think Local – Reaseheath College Business Growth program has been supporting a new business venture, The Cheshire Larder, which aims to supply quality, local produce from across the region to a variety of customers. This free public lecture event will discuss the ever-increasing trends for quality, sustainable and traceable foods, and how it presents exciting new commercial opportunities to support economic growth in the region. The event will feature speakers directly involved in the supply and delivery of local food, and businesses who are making bold steps in creating local demand and providing a gateway to farmers.

Local food is an investment in the future. By supporting local farmers and producers today, you are helping to ensure that there will be farms in your community tomorrow.
