Welcome to Custom Food Lab.

Custom Food Lab was created on the premise that food is a basic building block of culture and stability. We are involved in work around food security and food cultures, we campaign for more localised and sustainable approaches to food production and actively seek out creative strategies for supporting better ways of eating and caring for ourselves and the planet.

“We must occupy the food system to create food democracy” Dr Vandana Shiva
