The report has explored ways Manchester Fayre could purchase local organic (hence sustainable) food, offering economic, social and environmental benefits to the region. The study has investigated the feasibility of supplying significant quantities of sustainable food to Manchester Fayre and the wider public sector with the aims of:
- Reducing the CO2 emissions of our city’s food.
- Nurturing behavioural change in favour of low-carbon food choices.
- a replicable and financially sustainable solution.
- Identifying solutions which offer greater economic security for both farmers and Manchester Fayre.
