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.

Woman preparing ensete for planting, Gamu Highlands, SW EthiopiaTo 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 around 50 development, environment, farmer and academic organisations, drawn together by a common concern to secure future food.

In Europe we represent BOND (British Overseas NGOs for Development) on global food and farming issues, including representation in CONCORD’s European Food Security Group.

We keep members and friends informed through a discussion list. If you are interested, please subscribe to join the list.
