About the BBO Food Group
The food group in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes and Oxfordshire work as a federation to promote locally produced foods and drinks.

The BBO Food Group Business Plan identifies priority directions and activities covering the three counties. Download the Business Plan here.

Each county food group has individual local programmes of activities, leading on specific projects. The majority of activities are co-ordinated by the Oxfordshire Food Group.

Membership of BBO Food Group is open to producers, processors, caterers, retailers and consumers who are either based in the three counties, or are based in a neighbouring county and sell their produce within the BBO area.

As a business, you are invited to choose from four different types of membership – Associate, Full, Hospitality and Patron.

Consumers and individual supporters of our activities and of local food in general are offered the Food Forum package.

We are working with Thames Valley Farmers’ Market Co-operative to promote local food and drink through a joint marketing strategy, and can offer special membership rates to members of TVFMC (see Full Membership).
