Visit Greenwich does Good Food!

  Posted on 31st January 2018

We’re delighted We’re delighted that Visit Greenwich is supporting Good Food this February by encouraging local businesses to sign the pledge.

Good Food February in Greenwich is set to celebrate all that’s fantastic about local Greenwich food, restaurants, shops and produce.

Nobody likes February very much, do they, so let’s cheer up this grey month with some great food.

Visit Greenwich is working with Good Food in Greenwich to promote their Good Food Charter. The charter is for individuals, organisations and businesses who want to commit to good food We want local businesses and organisations to sign up! It’s free and will help promote local restaurants as healthy and happy businesses.

They’ll feature any business that signs up in February on the Visit Greenwich Twitter feed.  And we’re delighted to say that we’ve already have Goddards at Greenwich and The Greenwich Tavern make their pledges.  Goddards pledge to “ensure fairness in their food chain and fairness in their pricing to customers. Also to be a responsible member of the local community.”  And The Greenwich Tavern have pledged to “support local & regional suppliers and campaigns, reduce waste and promote good food”.  Welcome to the Good Food family!  

Greenwich has two breweries; Meantime Brewing which exports all over the world, and Hop Stuff which is growing rapidly – and they’re both signed up to Good Food in Greenwich.  The borough has Rhodes, an independent bakery that donates surplus bread to charitable causes in the borough.  We boast fantastic fishmongers, butchers, greengrocers, organic food sellers, delis and even old fashioned sweet shops.

The delicious street food in Greenwich Market is influenced by cultures from all over the world  and pubs and restaurants in Greenwich, Woolwich and the surrounding area serve delicious dinners ranging from traditional pie and mash to Vietnamese and Eritrean delights.

We want Greenwich to be known as a great place for good food for all. Celebrating our rich diversity, we will grow, produce, prepare and share good food that is healthy, sustainable, affordable and accessible to all. Good food means food from farming and supply systems that enhance the health and welfare of people and animals, improve the working and living environment, promote fairness and enrich society and culture.

Once you sign up to the Charter, we’ll send you a poster so you can display it in your premises showing you commitment to good food. Sign up to the Charter at the Good Food in Greenwich website. There’s a Pledge box on the top right of the Home page here: http://www.goodfoodingreenwich.org/

We’re delighted Greenwich has its own brewery, Meantime Brewing, which exports all over the world, its own independent bakery, and fantastic fishmongers, butchers, greengrocers, organic food sellers, delis and even old fashioned sweet shops.
