The bit about what we’d like from you…
Membership is open to food producers, growers, farmers, processors and distributors from within Bristol and beyond, as well as other related and interested organisations and individuals. To become a Member you need to be committed to the broad principles of the Bristol Good Food Charter.
This is a pledge to producing food that is:
- Good for people: everyone should have access to information, training and resources that enable them to grow, buy, cook, and enjoy good food.
- Good for places: the public and policy-makers should support and value food enterprises who promote local jobs, prosperity and diversity, and treat workers well.
- Good for the planet: food should be produced, processed, distributed and disposed of in ways that benefit nature.
Examples of showing this commitment would include:
- Being transparent about your methods and welcoming customer involvement.
- Being, or working towards being, pesticide and petro-chemical free.
- Being GM free
- A commitment to organic principles, joining the Wholesome Food Association or holding organic certification (e.g. Soil Association, Organic Farmers and Growers).
- Avoiding artificial additives in processing.
- Sourcing as locally as possible.
- Committed to or working towards paying the Living Wage.
