What we choose to eat has the largest impact, making a bigger difference than how far our food has traveled. This is because only a small fraction comes from transport, most CO2 food emissions come from processes on the farm.
Eco Food Directory
According to the UN a third of all global harmful emissions are from food systems. Protein rich foods account for the bulk of our dietary emissions. In European diets, meat, dairy and eggs account for 83%. If you want a lower-carbon diet, eating less meat is nearly always better than eating the most sustainable meat. Go Plant based!

We're proud of our heritage, absorbing pasties and clotted cream into our identity. Lets face it, Trelawney would never have made it to London on a caesar salad. But what about today?

Legends and heritage have to start somewhere, Cornish food and drinks already have a superb reputation. Lets get creating and inventing, like the Cornish giants that went before us. Can Cornwall do it again?
