Welcome to London Food. The homepage for the work of the GLA’s Food Team and the London Food Board and its partners.

Good Food for London Report 2013
The 3rd edition of this influential report charts the progress made by London's 33 boroughs in making London's food system healthier and more sustainable. This year the London Borough of Merton joins Islington at the head of the field.
Apprentices and London's food and hospitality sector
The capital's food sector turns over £16 billion a year and employs more than 300,000 Londoners. It is one of the most diverse and vibrant of any in the world and an important part of our economy.
The sector offers a wide range of careers but sometimes struggles to attract the skilled workforce it needs to develop and grow. Apprenticeships are a great way to address this gap and can help build a dedicated and committed workforce to improve a business' bottom line.
