The Work

Supporting sustainable and humane farming, promoting access to healthy, low impact, local, seasonal and organic diets and reducing food waste.

It might be surprising, but impacts from the food we eat can make up a third of an individual’s ecological footprint. Food comes from all over the world to reach our plate, and often has to be kept cold or frozen en-route. Intensive animal farming practices make poor use of resources – as such, it can be better for the environment to become vegetarian than to stop driving your car.

The One Planet vision is one where people are able to eat diets high in local, seasonal and organic produce, as well as healthy diets high in vegetable protein and lower in animal protein. This means easily accessible and affordable fruit and vegetables, it means helping children to make healthy choices, it means a new way of cooking and a shift in our relationship with our food.
