This summer we brought together Horsham District hospitality businesses and producers to enable more local produce to be served on local menus.

We know that food tastes better when you know more about it and where it comes from. It is what customers want and it makes sense not just for the local economy but it also reduces food miles, the carbon footprint of your produce, and air pollution and so is a win win for the environment too.

This special event to ‘Plate Up Local’ was held at Wiston Wine Estate, attended by restaurants, pubs, and café businesses as well as local food producers. Guest speakers included celebrity chef and MasterChef Winner Kenny Tutt.

Commissioned by Horsham District Council, the event was organised by Natural Partnerships CIC, who run the Sussex Food & Drink Awards and, which is a directory of local food and drink.
