These can directly intersect with the food system such as catchment scale flood management strategies or linear infrastructure traversing farmland. Or the link can be indirect but powerful such as integrating food growing into buildings and neighbourhoods.

The drivers vary, spanning placemaking, ESG credentials or the understanding that food systems can be part of the solution to a particular problem. However, organisations with those opportunities maybe less familiar with the food system and thus hesitant to explore the full potential of integrated food strategies. 

We have worked with both private and public sector organisations to develop project specific food and agriculture strategies for diverse projects. Our expertise spans large scale strategies for river catchments, making the investment case for urban food growing gardens to address environmental challenges to food strategies for urban developments and buildings.
