The Food Assembly Comes to Aberdeen

The Food Assembly

A new way of buying food is coming to Aberdeen. The Food Assembly is a local initiative that brings people together to buy fresh food directly from local farmers and food makers.

Every week Food Assembly customers can order food online from local food producers before picking it up weekly at a local venue.

At the Aberdeen Food Assembly, all the food comes from an average distance of 28 miles, compared to the 600 miles with a supermarket.

Community is at the heart of The Food Assembly – it connects neighbours to farmers, neighbours to each other, and everyone to their food. By choosing to buy local, shoppers can support the community of Aberdeen as for every £1 spent through the Aberdeen Food Assembly, 90p stays in the local economy. It also ensures your money reaches the right people; food producers keep over 80% of sales for every product sold, compared to 15%-25% through supermarkets. In addition, there is less food waste as all the food is ordered in advance.

The Aberdeen Food Assembly is organized by a group of food lovers, who enjoy to share their passion for healthy, good and local food with others.

The Aberdeen Food Assembly launches on Foodstory Cafe, in Thistle Street, on Sunday 27th of November 2017, from 3pm to 5 pm.
