Sustainable Food Hubs are values-led organisations, each defined by their own unique culture and ethos.
But putting all their values into practice simultaneously can be challenging. They may feel under pressure (from themselves, their customers and the public) to deliver environmental, social and economic sustainability, but these goals often conflict. This report, based on detailed interviews with our core group of Sustainable Food Hubs, reminds us to ask: ‘What is a Food Hub in a position to tackle?’ In fact, the hubs reported that they continuously reassess what sustainability means when it is put into practice. The report suggests that their flexibility in finding answers to this question makes them an especially resilient node within local food infrastructure.
