We believe that the food system should be controlled by the people it serves. We want to be a part of a democratic food system where both the producers and consumers are working together to secure a healthy, wholesome local food system.
How will this work in practice?
Well, it involves getting people together to talk about what they want to see from a local food system; to share ideas about how we could improve this system; or just to talk about and share good food. This is what the Hwb Bwyd Tywi can offer – a way of facilitating these conversations.
The Hwb Bwyd Tywi is registered as a Co-operative Community Interest Company. This means that the assets of the company are held to benefit to local community, and residents of the local community can join the co-operative.
We offer Membership to those who use the Hwb Bwyd Tywi our customers and our producers.
