Sustainable Food Economy

Gloucestershire’s food and drink sector is a thriving and vital part of its economy – we have so many great nature-friendly food and drink producers. By buying more local and sustainably produced food we can help shift our food and drink sector towards a more people and planet friendly path.

Visit Gloucestershire work with key partners and producers across the county to help shape our sustainable food and drink economy as part of their wider work promoting the Visitor Economy in the county. Check out their Food & Drink Trails, Sustainability Champions and  work on Carbon Minimising Menus.

We also have a number of great local food heroes and award winners – check out this year’s winners of the Gloucestershire Foodie Awards 2024.
