Milan Food Policy Guidelines 2015-2020
In July 2014 the Municipality of Milan and Fondazione Cariplo signed a Memorandum of Understanding to promote and implement a comprehensive strategy on food for the city of Milan called Milan Food In July 2014, the Municipality of Milan and Fondazione Cariplo signed a Memorandum of Understanding to promote and implement a comprehensive strategy on food for the city of Milan called Milan Food Policy and promote international dialogue aimed at defining and signing an international pact on urban Food Policies called Milan urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP).
The MUFPP is the result of a collective effort of 46 cities around the world and an advisory group of institutions and foundations operating internationally. Shared goals were identified with respect to which each signatory undertook to take steps according to its abilities, possibilities and availability. This document entitled “Guiding Principles of the Milan Food Policy 2015- 2020” (hereafter simply “Food Policy”) is the result of a journey that lasted 12 months and was divided into two main phases: Phase 1. Analysis , Phase 2. public consultation.
The first phase, devoted to an analysis of the characteristics of Milan’s food system, focused on:
- The urban cycle of food exclusively (production, processing, logistics, distribution, consumption, and waste); waste);
- The context in which the Milanese food system is divided (e.g. Demography, territory, biodiversity, energy aspects, water, connected economies, health, culture, education, etc.);
- Policies and projects of the Municipality that have interrelationships with the food system;
- The planning of social and economic actors operating in the city on food matters also with a view to creating public goods.
At the end of this phase, a paper called “The 10 Issues of the Milanese Food Policy” was published, summarising the results of all the analyses made and highlighting ten key issues which contain both the condition of the food system in Milan, and stimulation for public debate.
The second phase was devoted to a public consultation in which, starting from the “10 Issues” paper, priorities for action were identified. The consultation was carried out in five months (February-June 2015) and involved about 700 people. The consultation was divided into:
- Meetings with administrators and City counsellors;
- Meetings with citizens in each of the 9 districts of Milan;
- Meetings with universities and the research community, the third sector and the profit and non-profit companies;
- A town meeting attended by about 150 people from social, economic and institutional circles of the city.
The Milan Food Policy was approved by the City Council on 5 October 2015 (CC Resolution n.25)
The priorities of the Milanese Food Policy are:
- To ensure healthy food and sufficient drinking water as primary nourishment for everybody. Ensure access to healthy drinking water and sufficient food to all citizens as primary nourishment in order to protect human dignity and improve the quality of life.
- To promote the sustainability of the food system. Facilitate the consolidation of all the components and activities necessary for managing a sustainable food system and promote local production and consumption of fresh and seasonal quality food.
- Understanding food. Promote a culture oriented to consumer awareness of healthy, safe, culturally appropriate, sustainable food, produced and distributed with respect for human rights and the environment.
- Fight against waste. Reduce surpluses and food waste during the different stages of the food chain as a tool for limiting environmental impact and to contrast social and economic inequalities.
- To support and promote scientific agri- food research .Fostering the development of a Milanese agri-food scientific research with connotations of implications related to the urban system, aiming at improving processes and developing cutting-edge technologies.
