The Vegetable Summit

The Vegetable Summit is a pledging event, which forms part of the Peas Please intiative led by The Food Foundation, Nourish Scotland, WWF and Food Cardiff.  There will be 3 summits held simultaneously on October 24th in London, Cardiff and Edinburgh, where food system actors such as retailers, restauranteurs, caterers, manufacturers, growers, broadcasters and government will join together to make commitments that will shift our food system to make it easier for everyone to eat more Veg.  Details of each event can be found below.

All events are by invitation only.






This event will be in the Chamber of City Hall, The Queen’s Walk, London.  Click to read the summit programme below.  For more information email

More special guests will be announced shortly.







The Scottish team are lining up experts and representatives from industry, cities and the Scottish government to discuss the opportunities and to pledge actions.

The event will be held from 10.00am – 4.00pm in the Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh.  Founded in 1670 as a physic garden to grow medicinal plants, the site has now a reserved section for the Edible Gardening project where Edinburgh residents can attend grow-your-own courses, and where the RBGE staff are experimenting with wild varieties of veg.

The day will include an exhibition of vegetables and their health attributes, and a ‘Best Turnip in Show’ competition, to be confirmed.

Special guests will be announced shortly.
