Herefordshire Food Charter. Healthy food for people, place and planet

We are proud to have arranged the snacks for an upcoming Marches Forward event! We chose Two Farmers Droitwich salted crisps as our Herefordshire snack offering to sit alongside Shropshire Shrewsbury biscuits and Powys Welsh Cakes.

The Two Farmers range of crisps is made using potatoes that are grown, harvested, stored, cooked and packed using renewable energy on their farm in Herefordshire and packaged in 100% compostable bags. Potato growing can involve a lot of inputs of energy and time, so we think it's great that Two Farmers are offsetting some of this with renewable energy and compostable bags.

We are currently digging in to find out more about their growing methods and will report back soon! 

Do you know of any river friendly snack producers in the county? Dried apple rings? fruit leathers? Let us know!

The Marches Forward Partnership became a reality at an official event held last year at Hay Castle on the Welsh and English border.  The new partnership sees Herefordshire Council join forces with Shropshire Council and Monmouthshire and Powys county councils, to take on some of the big challenges they all share. Herefordshire Food Alliance have been in the conversations from the beginning. We will keep you updated with news on the partnership going forward.
