  • The Food Foundation

    Email:

    The Food Foundation is an independent think tank that tackles the growing challenges facing the UK’s food system in the interests of the UK public.  We provide clear analysis of the problems caused by the food system and the role of policy and practice in addressing these.  We develop and articulate food policies that support and guide the UK public to make choices that improve their health and well-being and we inform and generate demand for new and better public and private sector policy and practice. Specifically we want to see four areas of policy and practice change: 1.Cross government leadership on accessible, healthy and sustainable diets 2.Policy and practice which re-balances the food environment and choice architecture so it supports healthy eating (covering e.g. marketing, planning and licensing and public food provision) 3.Policy and practice which incentivises and regulates the food supply chain so it supports healthy and sustainable diets (e.g. through impacts on price, quality, provenance, perishability, safety, availability etc) 4.Evidence gaps which are a barrier to decision making are addressed We are independent of all political parties and business, and we are not limited by a single issue or special interest. We work with others who believe there is a problem with the system and want to change it.

  • Biodynamic Agricultural Association of Ireland (BDAAI)

    Email:

    The BDAAI was founded in 1985, to promote biodynamic farming and gardening in Ireland. The BDAAI supports farms and gardener’s looking for Demeter certification but it is not its main aim. Demeter certification in Ireland is now under the auspices of the Biodynamic Association UK The BDAAI organises conferences annually, workshop, garden and farm walks during the summer and provides a biannual newsletter. Combined with real world research and open minds the BDAAI aims to bring the practices of biodynamic agriculture to gardens and farms all over Ireland. Biodynamic agriculture and its practices come from a series of lectures  given by Rudolf Steiner in 1924. But the knowledge and systems he spoke of are much older, from a time when man and nature were closely bound. Biodynamics has evolved and grown worldwide since then. Biodynamic Agriculture is a method of farming that recognises the dynamic nature of living systems and the farmers/growers who interact with it. It considers all the factors that influence plants, animals and the surrounding environment.
