Why a partnership?
Over the past few years the Gloucestershire Food and Farming Partnership (GFFP) has evolved to develop an effective partner network for stakeholder collaboration and communication.
This co-created, powerful and unified vision, represents a significant step on a journey towards a county wide strategy that will enable Gloucestershire to optimise opportunities and address these key challenges effectively.
Our purpose is to...
Create: innovative approaches to transforming the food and farming system by co-designing initiatives to deliver multiple economic, social, health and environmental outcomes.
Collaborate: across Gloucestershire and convene partners with diverse agendas. Together we align projects so that success in one area of the food and farming system is not thwarted by constraints in another, producing both holistic, impactful outcomes.
Communicate: amongst our partners building a community network, and signpost opportunities contributing to transformational change. We champion people and organisations who are committed to improving our County, and support partners to influence policy change.
