The Food Life raises awareness of the value of real food, provides information and opportunities to connect with others across the food system and works to build infrastructure such as this website and food hubs, education and support to the rural economy based around Angus agriculture.
The Food Life supports creating more quality jobs in processing, production, distribution and marketing of Angus sustainably grown crops. We collaborate to "connect the dots” of the many exciting projects and substantial resources focused on local food in Angus.
Most food we eat in Angus originates outside our area, yet we have some of the nation's best farmland. Our small towns are losing quality jobs to the cities, yet it is rural Angus that can feed the people in our cities. Notably Dundee.
The Food Life is a non-profit Community Benefit Society created to strengthen the ties between Angus farming and food businesses and community economic vitality with an emphasis on rural and semi-rural Angus.
Aberdeen City Council Countryside Ranger Service is committed to working for a biodiverse, best value and socially inclusive future for all the City's countryside resources. It works in partnership to offer quality environmental education and recreational opportunities for all.

The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by The Prince of Wales’s philosophy of harmony: that by understanding the balance, the order and the relationships between ourselves and the natural world we can create a more sustainable future.
For more than 40 years His Royal Highness has been at the forefront of championing sustainability. During the last decade the impact of natural resource depletion, climate change and rapid urbanisation has become evident and widely understood. The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by the belief that only by taking a holistic view can we create a sustainable future to meet the needs of our world.
The Prince’s Foundation was created through the merger, in 2018, of The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust and The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts.
