Tameside Food Partnership


1. Vision:

Our vision is to work in partnership with public, private and voluntary sectors and communities in Tameside to create a food environment, system and culture that promotes health, stimulates the local economy, benefits communities and reduces environmental impact. 
Our aspiration is that all providers of food maximise the provision of healthy and nutritious unprocessed food such as wholegrains, vegetables and fruit and minimise food high in fat, sugar and salt; all residents have access to affordable healthy food and have the skills and confidence to cook from scratch; no-one goes hungry; food and packaging waste is minimised; and the impact on health and the environment is a primary factor in all food enterprises within the Borough.

2. Aim:

The aim of the strategy group is to develop, implement and monitor a healthy and sustainable food strategy and action plan for Tameside.
