Bristol signs the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact

10 September 2018

Bristol now joins 176 global cities that are committed to changing the food system through local policy and action.

Key to the MUFPP Framework is the commitment of cities to work in cross-sectoral partnerships to integrate food into social, economic and environmental policy.

Sarah Hills of the University of the West of England writes that 'the local authority is a key delivery partner in its own right with potential to integrate food into key policy areas such as economic development, spatial planning and parks and open spaces and to review and deepen its significance in areas such as procurement, public health and social care, schools and waste management'.

By adding legitimacy to the sustainable food agenda, this move by Bristol City Council may encourage key local delivery partners like LEPs, local businesses and the NHS to get more involved in the city's local food partnership.
