City of Ghent

The city of Ghent (Gent) in Belgium, with 250,000 inhabitants, launched its food policy in 2013, which includes five strategic goals to pave the way for a sustainable food system for Ghent.

The City of Ghent set up a ‘food council’, a group of key stakeholders advising on and co-creating a more sustainable local food system. They explore innovative ways of building networks amongst cities internationally.
