Read why some businesses and organisations support the charter:
Make sure you sell and serve the best food
The capital’s public and private sectors have a role to play in transforming Edinburgh into a thriving, sustainable food city. If you are an employer then make sure your staff have access to fresh,healthy, local food at work. Join a scheme like the Healthy Living Award or Soil Association Catering Mark, or get a fruit delivery to the office. If you are a tourism business, then perhaps you could help promote Edinburgh as a destination with great, unique, food and drink on offer for visitors? If you serve food and drink, then can you buy more local food and train your staff to tell more people about it?
There is plenty of support out there to help you to serve and sell more sustainable food.
