Good Food Economy. How councils can support good food enterprises: findings from London

This report presents ideas for how councils can work with local food enterprises and organisations to build back a better, fairer, more inclusive, healthier, sustainable, and prosperous economy after Covid-19.


This includes support for food markets, social enterprises, local shops, caterers, and other small and medium sized food enterprises (SMEs) that feed residents, visitors and provide economic benefits and accessible jobs.

It builds on Sustain’s work in London on Good Food Retail and Sustainable Food Places theme of Sustainable Food Economy.
