The Neath Port Talbot Food Partnership is bringing together people, businesses and organisations with an interest in local food, to collaborate, connect and strengthen NPT’s food system and local food economy. 

Together, we are working towards shared values and priorities, delivering projects that promote healthy, local and sustainable food.  It’s about businesses, organisations and local residents, coming together to try and relocalise our food supply chain and support local small producers in the food system. 

We would love to hear from anyone who is keen to be involved!

The Neath Port Talbot Food Local Food Guide features local food growers, producers, businesses and community organisations, and discusses the huge challenges facing Neath Port Talbot’s local food system.

It’s part of our campaign to encourage people to buy local food and consider their values when making food choices.  And to simply ask the question of retailers, cafes, restaurants and catering outlets:

Is it local???
