Multi-generational loss of skills means that heavily processed convenience food and takeaways are the norm for many people. 10 out of 35 neighbourhoods in Bristol have no greengrocer. Many high streets, especially in the most vulnerable neighbourhoods are dominated by empty shops, poor quality fast food and off licenses as a consequence of supermarket monopolisation. An estimated 40% of food produced in the UK is wasted along the supply chain The UK imports 90% of fruit and 60% of vegetables
