The Veg Summit - Making a Pledge for More Veg

24 October 2017 09:30 - 24 October 2017 17:30
London, Edinburgh and Cardiff

The Vegetable Summit is a pledging event, which forms part of the Peas Please intiative led by The Food Foundation, Nourish Scotland, WWF and Food Cardiff.

The common goal? To help us eat more veg by making our food system more supportive.

This event is for all food systems actors such as retailers, restauranteurs, caterers, manufacturers, growers, experts, campaigners and government to come and make commitments that will shift our food system to make it easier for everyone to eat more Veg.

London

Being held in The Chamber of London City Hall, this all-day event includes an incredible array of special guests who will form themed panels. Each panel will discuss the challenge to veg consumption from their sector’s perspective, and the role they will play in addressing that challenge. The day will be hosted by Sheila Dillon from Radio 4.

Sir John Hegarty and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall will also be announcing the winner of our creative ad competition and there’s more to look forward to on the day.
There are just a few remaining tickets which you can book here.

There is a small fee for this event which helps us cover the event costs. If you can’t afford this then please get in touch alex.ward@foodfoundation.org.uk.
