To realise a circular economy for food – and the economic, environmental and health benefits associated with it – unprecedented action is needed across the food system. The Food Flagship Initiative is looking to recognise and showcase bold and ambitious demonstration projects that pioneer circular food system solutions across the three pillars of action.
Whether you’re a university sourcing local and organic food on campus, a London borough taking action to reduce the environmental impact of school meals, a supermarket undertaking a household food waste reduction campaign, or a bio-economy innovator cycling food waste into nutrient-rich fertiliser, we want to hear from you!
Demonstration projects will benefit from:
Amplification: We will help promote your project as a pioneering demonstrator of the circular economy for food in London. You’ll get to use a special demonstration project ‘stamp’ to show your affiliation to the Food Flagship Initiative. We’ll also work with you to produce a case study to share with our key audiences in London, UK and around the world.
Connections: Whether you are looking to scale your activities or explore new circular economy collaborations we will help leverage direct introductions relevant to your needs.
Support: You will join a cohort of leading demonstrator projects, receiving peer-to-peer opportunities as well as the combined expertise of ReLondon and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. We’ll arrange regular one-to-one catch ups with you to help with strategic direction, provide key insights, and share resources relevant to your activities in London and the circular economy.
