Can we find locally grown & produced food?

50 miles

Feed your family from fifty miles is a very simple project to label and promote locally grown food.

Many of us would like to eat locally grown and produced food but sometimes we just don’t have the time to shop around to find it and some food and drink labelling can be vague and time consuming to read.

This project is intended to clearly identify food grown or reared within fifty miles of Dunbar/East Linton, including products made with locally grown ingredients.

To qualify, food must have been grown or raised within fifty miles of the point of sale or the majority of ingredients in the product must have travelled less than fifty miles.

This is partly about reducing food miles but also about supporting the local food economy. We live in one of the most fertile areas of Scotland. Let’s re-connect growers and consumers and make it easier to quickly see what food and drink on our shelves is produced within 50 miles of where we live.

Sustaining Dunbar is facilitating projects funded by the Scottish Government with the specific aim of helping households and schools to reduce their CO2 emissions related to food, waste, transport and energy use.
