What’s special about a Food Assembly?

We connect local food producers with local people at a local venue. Members browse a range of locally-produced Welsh food. They learn about the people producing their food. Most of our producers are family farms or businesses.

At the Assembly, members meet the food producers. Producers are paid after the orders are collected. As all producers and the Assembly host are local, 90% of what you spend remains in the local economy. This compares to supermarkets, where 50-75% of spending leaves the region.

Can anyone join in?

Browsing and ordering requires a Food Assembly account. This is a simple signing-up process. It’s free and without obligation to order anything. All you need is access to the Internet. A smartphone app allows you to do everything from your mobile!

Participation as a food producer requires a process of registration and vetting by Food Assembly. We ensure producers adhere to standards. And that they are local to an Assembly. (Maximum distance 150 miles. Our average is about 12 miles!).

How did it start and why is it significant?

Food Assembly is a Europe-wide initiative. It started in France and now exists in many European countries.

Food Assembly provides an important alternative to mainstream food shopping. It is helping local food producers succeed. It is providing a more sustainable form of food shopping. We believe it provides a way to shop fairer…eat better…feel better!
