David Rose, CPRE's new East Midlands Regional Coordinator for the project, said:
'The meeting will be a great chance to find out more about the project, to join the team of volunteers and to see how the findings could support and develop the local food web in and around Birstall and Leicester,' David Rose concluded.

This week, we have a guest blog from David Rose, Sustain's farm co-ordinator. In this first entry (hopefully, we'll persuade him to find time in his hectic schedule to bring us updates), he tells us of how things are going on his mission to bake a Local Loaf for Lammas with specially bred wheat from his own farm.
My name David Rose and I'm 50 this year.
David Rose, is a co-founder and co-director of Farmeco UK Ltd, a contract farming company established as a collaborative farming venture by four neighboring farms in Nottinghamshire. David also works part time with the Campaign to Protect Rural England on a mapping project as part of Making Local Food Work.

David Rose believes that the chain between farmers and consumers has broken down, and that there are now too many groups representing the farm retail sector.This is diluting their effectiveness at a time when the agricultural industry is in crisis.He is suggesting the launch of a single specialist food umbrella group to reconnect the chain and to give British farming a future.
"Farmers and producers do not want the industry to survive on handouts and charity, becoming totally reliant on sponsorship from others," he claims."They want the industry to be self-sustaining, and for profitable business to reinvest.They want to increase the health and well-being of UK consumers, while at the same time, reconnecting the supply chain with a learning experience from which everyone could benefit."
David, who farms at Car Colston, near Bingham, adds: "For too long UK farming has been product, not market, focussed, and consequently the farmer has lost touch with the consumer.UK farming must now concentrate on reconnecting with the food industry and ultimately the consumer.To achieve reconnection, farmers must think as a consumer and develop their products accordingly."
David is calling for a single specialist food umbrella group - Food from Britain - to promote the top quality food we produce in this country.Working alongside this should be an educational organisation, a lobbying organisation such as the National Farmers' Union, and a commercial business to take British farming through the 21st Century and beyond.
Drawing from his experience, he suggests the commercial business could be known as the Wholesome Food Company and it would provide fresh, healthy, fully-traceable local food that can be trusted.
"Its customers will be the consumer, retailers and processors," he explains."This will be a national business that will only buy from UK farms that meet its strict criteria.It will produce a full range of products and will aggressively market them across all market sectors."
David, who was awarded the National Farmers' Union Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2000, spends around 15% of his time as a director of Farmeco UK Ltd - a group of three farms, one of which he owns, that are farmed collaboratively with one set of machinery and labour.
The rest of his time is devoted to Farmshop Home Delivery - a business he founded two years ago to supply locally produced food to local people in Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.It now has a customer base of almost 1,000, and the service has just expanded to provide convenient meals based on local ingredients to pubs, restaurants, cafes and farmshops in the area.
"The farmshop specials range is a prime example of what I am suggesting should be the way forward for farming," explains David.
David believes that the public would back a commercial operation that represented and united farmers and producers who were committed to responsible food and meat production.The WFC idea would:
Improve traceability of food Reduce the number of miles food travels Create a strong trustworthy brand Unite farmers behind a single entity He suggests that funding for the idea could initially come from the Government - just as the Curry Report into reconnecting agriculture and the consumer advises - and venture capital, but eventually it would become self-funding.
"The aim of WFC is to be a long-term sustainable company that generates profit and is accountable to its shareholders as well as the customers," he adds.

"Gaining a food production unit is a natural progression for a growing business, such as UK Countrylife Ltd, and Soufflé Plus will be a great asset to us," explains UK Countrylife Ltd Managing Director David Rose.
UK Countrylife Ltd, set up by third-generation farmer David Rose and based at Shackerdale Farm on the A46 between Bingham and Newark, currently produces more than 100,000 prepared meals a year for pubs, farmshops, caterers, and its Farmshop Home Delivery customers.Some of the dishes are now sold nationwide via the Fairway and Holdsworth food distribution groups, and are also available in outlets such as Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, and Downtown, near Grantham.
The merger will allow UK Countrylife to add to its range of dishes, which already include items such as Trent Valley beef braised in Melton Red Ale, Shackerdale chicken breast with Stilton and apricots, and Sherwood Forest pork in honey and ginger.New dishes are likely to include liver, bacon and onion pie, black pudding stack and a range of 'posh' sausages.
"The merger has taken a margin out of our costs, which is making us more cost effective and allowing us to expand the range of dishes we can offer," adds David Rose, who will be looking for more staff at the food production unit.
