Modern food production and farming has a monumental part to play in the worsening climate crisis. But it also has the potential to reverse climate change, transform the health of our people and our planet. The Sustainable Food Trust has been shouting about this since 2011 and as a result have made strides towards creating a fairer, more sustainable food system.
Until recently, organic farming, regenerative agriculture and the concept of soil health were considered fairly ‘out-there’. But thanks in part to the Sustainable Food Trust, these ideas are gaining momentum. Through global education projects, campaigns and scientific reports, SFT have been able to promote positive practices such as the use of local abattoirs, restoring soil health and ‘true cost accounting’ which looks at the hidden costs (not just monetary costs) of food production.
Why we think they’re great
We’re really behind SFT’s belief that policymakers and businesses will be empowered to act when there is sufficient pressure from informed public opinion. That’s why they take a multi-pronged approach, not only targeting senior policymakers, but also working with consumer groups and individuals to influence the status quo.
