FoodChains 4 Europe is a European project that is investigating how regional food chains can be made more sustainable. Oldham Council have partnered with organisations from 4 other European regions - Flevoland (NL), Plovdiv/Sofia (BG), Emilia-Romagna (IT), and Maramures (RO) - to develop innovation that contributes to the environmental sustainability of food chains, and will work in partnership with research organisations and food sector businesses to implement beneficial changes.

An action plan for Oldham will be created and implemented over the course of this project to formalise action and provide the structure to change food chains to become more environmentally sustainable.
