Food Group

The production of food and quality of that food is essential in the sustainability of any community. At present the Corsham area is very dependent on foods being produced from outside the area, which as well as leaving us vulnerable to the vagaries of market forces and climate issues, means excessive use of fossil fuels in both production and delivery.

  • Promoting awareness of the importance of a sustainable food industry and responsible retailing
  • Working on practical schemes to encourage local food production with less dependence on fossil fuels
  • Liaising with local councils, schools and community groups to provide allotments and community orchards

The Transcoco Food Group is a group of local people who are passionate about local food production and who encourage and promote the production and marketing of locally grown produce.
