The NHS Food Programme – encourages local farmers and food producers to supply Cornwall's hospitals with fresh wholesome produce, which is good for patients and staff alike and also the local economy. The post of Roy Heath, sustainable food procurement manager for the NHS Food programme, has received investment from the Organic South West Soil Association, an Objective One gateway fund. The Objective One Programme also invested in a nine-month feasibility study to investigate and identify improved ways in which the Cornwall healthcare community can develop food processing and meal production that will benefit patients, staff and visitors at hospitals throughout Cornwall. The NHS Food Programme is supported by all five of Cornwall's health trusts – Cornwall partnership Trust, the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust and the West, North and East and Central Cornwall Primary Care Trusts.

Organic South West is a Soil Association project part funded by the EAGGF and DEFRA under the Objective One Programme to grow the organic market in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It is managed as a regional office of the Soil Association. For more information contact Traci Lewis, project manager, Organic South West on 07870 268654.

In 2003 Carley's moved into premises expanded following a £232,000 project that had received almost £58,000 of Objective One investment. Carley's have had their own shop in St Austell Street Truro for the past 29 years, baking fresh bread and cakes as well as making their own range of pasta sauces, chutneys and preserves from a small kitchen and bakery on the premises. The expansion to an industrial unit at Malpas allowed Carley's to dramatically increase their production output and expand their product ranges in order to meet market demand.
