We believe Angus folk want to eat food grown in Angus. The Food Life reconnects Angus food growers with communities for the benefit of all.
What is the Food Life?
The Food Life networks people in Angus with local food producers to maximise health, social, economic and environmental benefits.
The Food Life raises awareness of the value of real food, provides information and opportunities to connect with others across the food system and works to build infrastructure such as this website and food hubs, education and support to the rural economy based around Angus agriculture.
The Food Life supports creating more quality jobs in processing, production, distribution and marketing of Angus sustainably grown crops. We collaborate to "connect the dots” of the many exciting projects and substantial resources focused on local food in Angus.
Most food we eat in Angus originates outside our area, yet we have some of the nation's best farmland. Our small towns are losing quality jobs to the cities, yet it is rural Angus that can feed the people in our cities. Notably Dundee.
The Food Life is a non-profit Community Benefit Society created to strengthen the ties between Angus farming and food businesses and community economic vitality with an emphasis on rural and semi-rural Angus.
We are member supported and membership is open to everyone. Won't you join us today?
