Introduction

As part of our ongoing work with Enfield Council, we are exploring the possibility of setting up a Local Food Forum for Enfield.  The Forum would bring together local food producers and retailers, as well as prospective new businesses, that are registered, operating or trading in the Borough of Enfield. 
It would aim to provide Enfield’s local food sector with an opportunity to network; to consider how the Council could most usefully support our work as small food businesses; and to encourage us to work together more closely. We hope to find new ways of supporting the local food enterprises in Enfield, and maybe even collaborate to set up new ones!
We are asking small food businesses across the Borough to take part in this survey, to share with us their ideas on what the Food Forum might do and how it could be most useful.  Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.
