The Food Flagship Initiative – ReLondon

Can you help drive food system transformation in London?

The Food Flagship Initiative – supported by the Mayor of London, ReLondon and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation – is looking to support and amplify circular food demonstration projects in London to drive food system transformation and deliver reductions in CO2 emissions. The city has launched a ‘Circular Food Pioneer Project’ status to formally recognise good practice circular food projects.

Do you have a new, collaborative and potentially transformative circular food demonstration project? Apply today to be recognised as one of the city’s circular food pioneer projects. Selected projects will be promoted through Food Flagship Initiative partners’ networks as official circular food pioneer projects and will be able to use an official ‘Pioneer Project’ status stamp. They will receive strategic support from ReLondon and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation as well as targeted introductions to potential partners. Find out more.

Are you interested in innovating your existing activity and working with others to pioneer a circular food system solution? Fill in this Expression of Interest form for the Food Flagship Consortium and tell the Food Flagship Initiative how they might be able to help you develop a collaborative circular food pioneer project that could have a material impact on food flows in London.
