Support healthier food businesses
Food growing enterprises
Support businesses through access to land, training, rate relief or other incentives.
There are a range of instruments which local authorities can use to support more vegetables in shops, cafes and restaurants and re-establish vital infrastructure such as markets, Grade 1 and 2 land, local processing, food hubs and distribution networks. Food partnerships can also have a key role in supporting healthier food businesses and start-ups with training and marketing support.
