Creating a local food system which is good for people, place and planet.
SHROPSHIRE GOOD FOOD PARTNERSHIP
Our Vision is for regenerative food, farming and land-use systems.
Member of the Sustainable Food Places Network since 2022.
The Shropshire Good Food Partnership has been formed with a vision to create a local food system that is 'good for people, place and planet'.
We're bringing together Shropshire's most switched-on food producers, retailers and consumers to make Shropshire's food system more resilient, sustainable and fair. We help our members make connections where ideas and support can be shared, and business grows.
SGFP is an organisation that facilitates action:
Through our Good Food Movement, we are asking individuals to commit to small everyday changes to build the sea-change we need: for our climate, our health and our communities.
As a business or organisation you can pledge your commitment to a better food system by signing our Good Food Charter. We're here to support your efforts and will help you link up with collaborators across the county to transition to a more sustainable Shropshire. Find out how you can get involved.
Shropshire Good Food Partnership also facilitates a number of working groups allowing organisations and individuals to focus on what they're most passionate about, such as food waste, land stewardship, local growing, and nature connection. Find out more about joining a working group.
OUR BIG EVENTS OF THE SEASON
The Shropshire Good Food Trail
June 24th to July 9 - County-wide
This summer follow our Shropshire Good Food Trail and discover businesses and organisations across the county that GROW, MAKE, SELL and SERVE amazing food and drink that is good for people, the planet and the local economy.
The Shropshire Good Food Trail is a celebration of our county’s rural heritage: to highlight Shropshire’s smaller-scale, more regenerative farmers and artisan producers and the shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants that support them.
The Shropshire Good Food Trail invites visitors and Salopians alike into the countryside and across the county for a series of events, talks, farm visits, and open-doors.
Join us as a host on the trail by registering your interest on our Good Food Trail website.
Visitors to the Good Food Trail can
stay tuned for more info by signing up to our newsletter and following us on Social media for the latest updates.
The aim of this conference is to bring people together around agro-ecological farming and food systems, to inspire each other, share good practice, build networks and create the community that can bring about the transition we need.
As a bio-region, 'The Marches' (both sides of the England/Wales border) offers us a huge opportunity to focus our efforts.
The event will be hosted at Linley Farm, September 15-16, 2023.
Please help us to make this an inspiring and informative event!
Look out for the upcoming release of our programme outline and ticket launch.

As a member of the Sustainable Food Places Network, we believe "that to drive a shift towards healthier and more sustainable food requires high public awareness of food issues and widespread participation in food-related activity, by both individuals and institutions, as part of a growing movement of active food citizenship."
Get involved in our working groups
Organisations and individuals have the opportunity to join one of our working groups, where collaborative teams come together to take action on key areas that create a food system where people and nature can thrive. We need your vision and solution finding skills to make real change happen.
