Territorial Food Systems

Territorialised food systems are an emerging alternative to the harmful globalized corporate food system which contributes to environmental degradation, poverty, hunger and social injustice. Territorial food systems aim at improving public health and food justice. In territorial food systems multiple actors (private, public and civil society) partner up to create shorter food value chains using agroecological methods to meet the environmental and social needs for resilience. This approach encourages the set-up of new farms and businesses along those value chains as well as helping to create more value for producers. It demands strong and efficient multi-stakeholder governance models.

COACH is a 3-year project aiming to drive innovation in Territorial Food Systems and improve outcomes for producers and consumers. 

We invite you to explore the different focus areas and discover the materials and tools developed within this project.
