Urban Food Routes
2014 saw us investing in Urban Food Routes helping 32 food enterprises in London gain expert advice and funding to help grow their business and support the vibrancy of local communities. It’s a unique initiative funded by the Mayor of London and Seeds of Change®, coordinated by the Plunkett Foundation, with help from Growing Communities and London Food Link.
Our commitment to these enterprises extended far beyond the financial support we’re provided. Seven Seeds of Change Associates - our employees - from all around the world came to London to work closely with these entrepreneurs as part of the Mars Ambassador Programme.
While our Associates were on hand to mentor and advise these businesses, they learnt just as much from the innovation and creativity these enterprises put into action every day.
In the same week that our Associates worked with these small enterprises in London, we celebrated Urban Food Routes with a special event. The New Faces of London Food, hosted by KERB.
