Food Justice

How can the food sector become more diverse?

Bristol Food Network

Join Bristol Food Network for a panel discussion on how to increase diversity in the food sector. All speakers will be announced soon.

Food Justice is one of the key themes of Bristol Good Food 2030: A One City Framework for Action. Launched this month, the framework aims to transform the city’s food system within the decade, supporting its ambitions on climate, biodiversity, health and social justice.

By 2030, we are aiming for Bristol’s food sector to offer improved working conditions and more career opportunities to citizens from all backgrounds. Join us for a panel discussion with a wide range of speakers to explore this hugely important topic.

At the event we will have speakers talking about how recruitment, HR and business practices can actively support increased diversity within organisations, we will hear about the experiences of refugees and asylum seekers setting up their own food business, and how hospitality can provide good careers for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The panel will include:

  • Dale Cranshaw: Deputy CEO, Windmill Hill City Farm
  • Shalini Sivakrishnan: Enterprise Facilitator, ACH
  • Eloise Morton: Managing Director, Square Food Foundation
  • Ped Asgarian: Director, Feeding Bristol

This event is part of Feeding Bristol’s Food Justice Fortnight.
