Online forms: HONOR - Sourcing food locally

This merit acknowledges those businesses that source food that has been produced, processed and traded within East Anglia or up to 30 miles from the food business.

This is important because food transport has been increasing steadily over the last few decades. This has a direct impact on the environment, contributing to congestion, greenhouse gas emissions, noise and air pollution.

In addition, trading locally delivers health, economic and social benefits to your local community.
