New survey launches to assess appetite for community and commercial kitchen spaces in the Vale

Do you have an interest in food or cooking?
Could your organisation/club/society/collection of friends make use of a local community kitchen?
Would your business benefit from a professional test-kitchen in the Vale of Glamorgan?

Food Vale is the sustainable food partnership for the Vale of Glamorgan. With support from the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund, we have commissioned locally based PER Consulting and Lafan to examine the potential demand for a shared kitchen facility within the Vale communities of Barry, Penarth and Llantwit Major.

The consultants are keen to hear from you if you are setting up a new food business or, if already established, could you have benefitted from the availability of a commercial kitchen to hire when you started.

Fill out the survey here

Would you make use of such a facility to test new ideas or launch new products?
Are you producing food locally? Could you supply local community organisations to create locally cooked meals for those most in need?
Are you striving to help your local community learn more about healthy eating or looking to improve cookery skills for all ages in the local area?

You may already be delivering such support but could you do even more with a dedicated community kitchen facility?

We would welcome your views on the opportunities and potential for shared kitchen facilities across the Vale of Glamorgan and have prepared a short survey to capture your feedback which can be accessed here.
