The UK Food Group is the principal UK network for NGOs working on global food and agriculture issues. Our vision is a world with a more just, sustainable and fairer food system in which hunger has been eradicated, equity realised and the environment restored.
To this end our work seeks to promote sustainable and equitable food policies and practices; to challenge corporate power by providing a public interest perspective on issues affecting the global food system; and to strengthen the capacity of civil society to contribute effectively to international processes and consultations on food issues.
We represent more than 30 development, farming, consumer and environment organisations, drawn together by a common concern to secure future food.
We keep members and friends informed through a discussion list. If you are interested, please subscribe to join the list.
