SERIO increases its Portfolio of Research on behalf of Making Local Food Work


SERIO has recently been commissioned by Making Local Food Work to explore the economic impact of community food enterprises.

This challenging piece of work complements two other pieces of work SERIO are currently undertaking on behalf of Making Local Food Work. This research will provide a better understanding of the economic value of the community food sector, the economic impact that it generates and what it achieves. More understanding is needed about the nature of this sector, the current development trends, the role community food enterprises play in their local economies and what this contribution signifies for the UK as a whole. The research will be completed in April 2012.
