We have seen many changes in how we consume food during lockdown.

The Welsh concept of Milltir Sgwar, square mile, promotes the ideology of belonging to and being immersed in a small community. This in turn could be interpreted as promoting the principles of returning to the benefits brought by a reduced supply chain. Local food supply and distribution saw a resurgence during lockdown that we haven’t seen since WW2. Have these changes, whether they be seen as rediscoveries or reinventions, been enough to secure the future of Welsh food cultures or will we all return to our old ways once lockdown is lifted?
