steve_m 581@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>Just submitted a suggestion to freerangeview that they enable local sellers to specify whether their food's locally grown &amp; processed e.g. a bakery using locally grown wheat that's also locally milled. Of course, their current definition of local as a 35 mile radius means that a "local" loaf could be made from flour milled up to 70 miles away from wheat grown up to 105 miles away. But they plan to reduce the radius to 10 miles over time and this would reduce the maximum grow/process/sell radius to a more sensible 30 miles. </p>

steve_m 580@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>Glad Rona picked this thread up again - I missed John's post on freerangeview. I can see the map OK too without registering. Zooming's a bit clunky - you have to zoom back in every time you return to search, though this only takes a few clicks/seconds. Apart from this, the site seems to do pretty much what we need. </p>

Rona 571@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>I tried to find the mapping function of <a href="http://freerangereview.com/" rel="nofollow">http://freerangereview.com/</a> but failed - despite looking in the FAQs. Could it be that you need to register to see it? I haven't registered as yet, partly because I get so many emails already and I'm trying to cut down - but also I'm a little suspicious of possible data mining. The website is free for companies listed and for members of the public and I don't see any ads - so I'm curious as to how it's funded. I see that it's supported by River Cottage - so maybe that's enough. I just thought it odd that the site doesn't appear to work properly unless you register.</p> <p>Anyone else any thoughts on this? </p>

alex 569@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>more importantly, the freerangereview site has actually delivered a project (although it has a few glitches, wouldn't consider Chelmsford as that "local") whilst there has been no progress with Suffolk Food Hub for 4 months (apparently there is supposed to be a pilot in early 2011 but its already early 201l...) </p>

John 568@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>Hi,not sure if you mean the links above Rona? If you type in your postcode and press 'go'a map comes up. Anyone can then add new things to the map as a listing, reviewer or producer. If you click on advance search and select 'all' everything comes up on the opening page and then you click through the options e.g veg boxes. Hope this helps (apologies if you already did that). </p> <p>It looks like you can just list stuff and say what it is about, you don't have to review it. There's more on there than I first thought -63 listings within a 35 mile radius of IP4. There are some farms, cafes, pubs I know of that are not on it yet.</p> <p>"Freerangereview is the local food community website. It lets companies that sell locally produced food tell the people around them about it. It also lets the people around them tell others and review what’s on offer. Freerangereview is a people populated site, where your legitimate reviews can be read by thousands of others, agreed with or possibly challenged.</p> <p>Freerangereview is not a campaign site, but it is a social utility geared toward helping consumers and companies alike to shout about local food and promote a healthier and more sustainable future. Its a 'Free Range' site, so get out there and roam free!"</p> <p>The suffolk food hub seems more like an e-commerce site. </p>

Rona 560@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>Interesting - but probably always going to be a bit limited in that it requires producers to find it and sign up, as far as I can see. It also seems to lack a map - or am I missing something?</p> <p>I'm gradually putting in the odd half hour on expanding the list of farms and shops on The Green Living Centre. I'll post the link soon when I've got a little more to show! I was hoping to tie it in with a map - probably on uMapper. </p>

John 551@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>This looks useful, it provides an updatable google map showing food producers within 35 miles of your postcode. <a href="http://freerangereview.com/" rel="nofollow">http://freerangereview.com/</a> </p> <p>Think it's linked with River Cottage.

joanne 110@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>&gt;have you joined as a supplier Joanne?<br /> No, I haven't, for the simple reason that I want to understand the beast before I engage. For example, the Suffolk Food Hall looked great, but don't appear to be that fussed about working with me as a local supplier (no recent orders and an unpaid bill) unless I can supply vast quantities of whatever they want. This sort of thing can be a waste of time and energy, unfortunately. I did call Yvonne, but didn't get a reply. Hope to find out more at Aldeburgh. </p>

alex 107@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>I've no objections - quite the opposite, it would be good to hear more definite "go-live" dates and more info on the actual functionality of this.</p> <p>At the moment my work actually uses ASDA for much of the bulk food orders (they are packed at Whitehouse branch and delivered). ASDA actually does source a lot of fruit and veg from local producers although it of course depends on season and on online ordering you can't see until its delivered! </p> <p>They do use local suppliers as well but price and customer service are paramount, a residential healthcare facility buys a lot of food! </p> <p>Ironically I notice due to current market forces a lot of meat and poultry from here ends up in SE England where it fetches higher prices - while our supermarket meat comes from the North and Scotland! My sister who lives in Reading can get duck raised near Woodbridge easier than I can! </p> <p>If this system can allow the locals to compete with ASDA I'm all for it... </p>

steve_m 105@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>This could be interesting - especially if it includes local food processors like millers, dairies, abatoirs etc. Then it could form a basis for a local food web for Suffolk. The non-local links in the food web would still need to be mapped though, in order to be able to see how much food enters and leaves Suffolk (and leaves and returns!). As long as we have enough water, every time we replace a non-local link with a local link we'll be increasing resilience.<br /> I'd like to have a look at the Hub - have you joined as a supplier Joanne? I've written to Yvonne Moores to ask how Ripple Food Co-op could join as a retailer.<br /> I don't see any problem with inviting Yvonne to talk to our Food group. The group's well established and well attended. We should let others in TI know first though, so they can raise objections if they have any. </p>

joanne 35@http://www.transitionipswich.org.uk/forum/ <p>I've signed up for the email updates on the Suffolk food hub created by Suffolk Country Council, which as I understand it is using web based technology to connect big and small food producers to business and public sector food customers such as restaurants, pubs schools and hospitals. It's at a pilot stage at the moment. I've copied their latest update below - if you're interested you can sign up for this newsletter here:</p> <p><a href="http://www.suffolkfoodhub.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.suffolkfoodhub.com</a></p> <p><em>Welcome to the Suffolk Food Hub Newsletter</p> <p>There is excitement in the air - we are in the process of creating the Suffolk Food Hub, an e-marketplace that could revolutionise the food and drink industry in the region. It won't be totally up and running for a good few months, but one of the most significant advances in Suffolk's food industry is just around the corner. Once completed it will enable: Producers to create new and larger markets at competitive rates for distribution Buyers will find it much easier to source a wider range of local food and drink Distributors will have greater opportunities to utilise spare distribution capacity</p> <p>You can register for this regular news update at <a href="http://www.suffolkfoodhub.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.suffolkfoodhub.com</a> and click on 'Sign up for news' The aim of the regular newsletter is to keep the industry up to speed with progress.</p> <p>So far we have worked with local food and distribution businesses to help us develop the e-marketplace. Our goal is firstly to create an e-marketplace that is valuable to the industry, and secondly to find investors who would be willing to commercialise the hub.</p> <p>The businesses working on the project are wide ranging both in terms of their size and scope. Some predominantly buy food to sell to their customers (in either a retail or catering environment), some produce it, and others act as distributors.</p> <p>All of these businesses have been working with us since May and will continue to do so until January 2011. Small food businesses are represented, as are medium sized organisations that distribute and buy food in Suffolk and beyond.</p> <p>If you would like more information about the Suffolk Food Hub, please contact Richard Walters Click Here or Yvonne Moores (yvonne.moores@suffolk.gov.uk)</p> <p>You may wish to come and talk to us at the Suffolk County Council 'Love Food Hate Waste' stand at the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival (Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th September) or at the associated Educational Conference on the 24th (www.aldeburghfoodanddrink.co.uk)</em> </p>
