Food Cardiff believes that the food we eat has a huge impact on life in Cardiff – not just on people’s health, but on communities and businesses, individual farmers and growers, and the environment too.
Our ambitious new strategy sees Cardiff becoming one of the most sustainable food places in the UK.
We need everybody living, working or visiting Cardiff to be involved
Join the movement
Together we can make a big difference, so get involved.
Hodge joins movement aiming to make Cardiff one of the UK’s most sustainable food cities
A specialist financial services business with headquarters at One Central Square has become the latest city-centre organisation to get behind the campaign to make Cardiff one of the UK’s most sustainable food places by 2024.
Food Cardiff, the city’s rapidly growing food partnership, is leading a campaign to bring together businesses, third-sector organisations, and major institutions in the city to help Cardiff reach Gold Sustainable Food Places status in the next two years.
Case Study: Hodge Bank and Oasis Cardiff
Helped by funding from FOR Cardiff’s City Ambition Fund we’re supporting businesses to ‘make a pledge’ to take actions which will help Cardiff to achieve Gold Sustainable Food Places status.
It’s not just food or hospitality businesses which can have an impact – here we hear from Gareth Cartwright, internal communication and engagement manager at city centre bank Hodge Bank
City centre businesses urged to take action to help Cardiff become one of the UK’s most sustainable food cities
Last year, Cardiff was awarded Silver Sustainable Food Places status – becoming the first place in Wales (and one of only six places in the UK) to achieve the prestigious accolade; the scheme is based on bronze, silver and gold achievements across six key sustainable food issues.
Now, independent businesses, third-sector organisations, and major institutions in the city centre are being urged to join in, and help Cardiff achieve Gold Sustainable Food Places status by the year 2024.
