South West Food Hub
The South West Food Hub is a Community Interest Company. It was formed in May 2020 to create a collaborative community to support the region’s food network to buy local and establish shorter, more sustainable supply chains. They work across the South West’s food sector, focusing primarily on public procurement.
They will pilot an online platform that will link public sector buyers with regional producers and suppliers. Anchor institutions, e.g. schools and hospitals, will be involved in the pilot, alongside food and drink businesses.
They are also supporting a number of other projects. These aim to help the regional food community during the Covid-19 pandemic, whilst championing their aspiration to build back better.
