Cities and Circular Economy for Food

This report offers a vision for a healthy food system for the 21st century and beyond, underpinned by circular economy principles. Focusing on the potential of cities to spark transformation, the report outlines three broad ambitions for a circular economy for food: sourcing food regeneratively, and locally where appropriate; making the most of food; and designing and marketing healthier food products. Four urban case studies are included: Brussels (Belgium), Guelph (Canada), Porto (Portugal), and Sao Paulo (Brazil).
