The T-GRAINS Project

A research project on co-creating desirable regional socio-ecological food relationships for sustainable and healthy UK diets

The food we eat often comes from abroad, imported through a global supply chain. The aim of our research is to understand whether increasing the proportion of our diet that is regionally produced could improve health and sustainability. We’re considering what each region could produce, what the relationships between consumers, retailers, and producers might look like, and how this could promote tasty, healthy, and more sustainable diets.
