The Declaration of Dunbar

We are working towards a sustainable Scotland in which, in every region we produce more of what we eat and eat more of what we produce.

We believe a more localised food system would be better for the environment, health, community and economy of our country. We are building a movement to create a food system that is:

  • Locally based with shorter supply chains
  • Promotes and respects seasonality
  • Resilient
  • Fair and accessible to all
  • Creates and maintains a sustainable livelihood for producers

These steps are essential in order to ensure a fairer more equitable food system appropriate for a low carbon economy.
