What we do
The Birmingham Food Council CIC is independent, a critical friend to the socio-political set-up.
We focus our limited resources on important matters that don’t get much attention or airtime. Perhaps remarkably this currently means food and the economy, also food safety, integrity and assurance, plus the role Birmingham can play in meeting the challenges of global as well as the city’s food security.
In 2017-18, we ran an horizon scanning project, the first of what will be a regular series.
We also commission ‘narrativium’ projects, with particular emphasis on engaging the upcoming generation, to help us communicate the important issues we raise.
The info-diagram below is a summary of our focus in 2018, thus includes the significant activities and projects we’re doing, and some of our previous work that is relevant to it.
