COP26 now in the recent past. However, many of us are looking to keep up our desire to support local businesses in dining and purchasing healthy, conscious, and tasty food. 2022 is the year of our planet, and what better way to look after month Earth than consuming sustainably sourced and produced foods.

Welcome to the Glasgow Sustainable Food Directory! Developed in collaboration with the Glasgow Food Policy Partnership, the aim of the directory is to showcase the most sustainable food shops and places to eat in the city.

Using an interactive map, you’ll be able to move around the city and locate what’s nearby. Below this map, you’ll find detailed information about all of the directory members. Each edition of the directory will also be accompanied by an easily downloadable PDF version for offline use.

This is an wonderful opportunity to showcase the most sustainable food Glasgow has to offer, and we welcome food outlets of all types to get in touch if you’re interested in becoming a part of the directory.

The First Edition

2021’s edition of the Directory includes 8 food shops and 16 cafés and restaurants, and it was launched on the 26th October 2021.

About the process

We asked restaurants and shops about the origin and environmental sustainability of the food sold on their premises; as well as, questions about their impact on wider environment and community. Out of those who submitted their applications the ones scoring 75% or above of the maximum points possible were successful.

We realise that the directory is not complete in its current form – several types of food and beverage providers might not fit into the food shop/restaurant/café categories, and that all the places in the city taking sustainability seriously might not be here yet. But we’re working on the marking criteria and we’re hoping to reach out to more (or all!) Glasgow food shops or restaurants for the second edition. Our small team did our best to contact as many as we could!

The Second Edition

Coming 2022. Entries are still open for this edition, so please see below for details on how to join us.

The Third Edition

We plan to update our directory regularly, and we would love to hear from any food places who did not manage to send in their application before the launch. In the next year, our team hopes to develop the directory further to include Sustainable Food awards structure and accreditation, so watch this space!

1 Recognition as one of the most sustainable places to eat/shop at in Glasgow
