The Foodshed and Food System Analysis for the Buller district is part of a Local Food Economy
initiative. In providing insights into the foodshed and food system, KNECT (the local community group that is driving the project) has a better understanding of the capacity for the Buller district to supply its own food needs with the purpose to promote more resilient food economies that have a stronger focus on localisation.

The Foodshed and Food System Analysis is in two parts. Firstly, the food production potential of the district’s productive land relative to the food needs of its population was evaluated. Secondly, an understanding of the systems that food must travel from production to plate were explored including a snapshot of stakeholders involved in that food system.
