“Edinburgh is a city where good food is available and accessible for all, making for healthy people, thriving communities and a sustainable environment.”
Food is healthy and fairly traded. Fresh produce is locally grown.
People can afford to eat well and food poverty is a thing of the past.
There is a thriving food economy with many more small and successful food businesses and great training to support them.
Culture is transformed and good food is at the centre of Edinburgh life.
The environment benefits from better ways of growing, shopping and eating food – better for wildlife and better for our planet.
I wish to engage in the subject.
Great initiative on such an important subject. Keep it up! Im looking forward to getting involved.
High quality, sustainable and healthy Scottish food should be the default option in shops, schools, cafes, hospitals restaurants and at home.
That such food remains a niche is a sad indictment on our country’s ability to feed itself well.
There are some positive signs of change, including Edible Edinburgh’s work.
Edinburgh’s a great food city. Let’s celebrate all that’s good about it. The inaugural Edinburgh Food Festival at Assembly held last week showed there’s a lot to celebrate about great food
Lets all build on the work that is being done in Edinburgh. Create a movement
Food is a multidimensional issue that effects everyone and everyone has their part to play in achieving the goal of true food security i.e. ʻsufficient food for everyone, always’ . Edible Edinburgh demonstrates this proposition, by, supporting and educating; growing and buying; cooking and eating – fresh, local, sustainable foods. Well done and thank you – Edible Edinburgh et al.
Love the energy and community spirit of Edible Edinburgh; something I’d be keen to support
Proud to live in a city with such fantastic food aims – keep up the good work!
Keep on for Edinburgh as a Sustainable Food City!
So excited to see good food even more in the spotlight in Edinburgh!

Our philosophy here at Peelham is “Sustainable Resilience”, which drives us to achieve core-wellbeing of our land and livestock, to produce a trusted, healthy, enjoyable product through our butchery in partnership with our employees for ourselves and our customers. We farm and produce organically and supply direct. Edible Edinburgh’s principles are about the ‘sustainable resilience’ of whole communities. This is deeply exciting. Sign the charter we must !
We at Edinburgh Community Food believe in “getting people into healthy food and healthy food into people” and fully support Edible Edinburgh’s vision.
At Mara we hold the belief that food should be healthy, local and sustainable very close to our hearts. It is great to see businesses and the public working together proactively, to ensure that the future of food is bright and constantly evolving.
We believe that all people should have access to good clean and fair food. On our organic farm we breed rear and butcher our own animals to high welfare standards. We applaud the ambition of Edible Edinburgh’s goals for a better food system for Edinburgh.
We teach breadmaking in the Scottish Borders and have been involved in Edible Edinburgh since it began. We’re pleased to sign up to the Charter. Our project, Scotland The Bread, aims to recreate a locally-controlled, nutritious and sustainable grain, flour and bread supply for all.
