The Kent food and drink industry adds an estimated 2.6bln to the local economy.

Our core activities centre around sector advocacy, online (website, electronic newsletters, social media) and offline member promotion and campaigning for local sustainable food and drink, networking facilitation and technical business support provided through our industry and strategic partnerships with corporates, local professional services providers, educational institutions, and community organisations. Produced in Kent’s annual Taste of Kent Awards is the county’s flagship event around local food and drink, celebrating the finest products Kent has to offer as well as the businesses behind them.

We are a membership organisation operating as a limited company by guarantee (not-for-profit model) and derive the larger part of our revenues through membership and industry partner fees and corporate sponsorship, as well as through annual funding from Kent County Council.

Produced in Kent puts sustainability at the core of its activities and member support, championing sustainable food and drink and helping our businesses operate in an environmentally and socially sustainable way. Produced in Kent spearheads several projects (FoodLoop, Kent Gleaning Collective) that help members reduce their food waste/surplus food. Keen to improve the regional food system, Produced in Kent is the initiator behind the newly established Kent Food Partnership1, a cross-sector collaboration between local Government, Public Health, educational institutions, the business community and civil society on making good healthy food accessible to all in the county.
