  • Responsible 100

    Email:

    Responsible 100 is about making real responsibility the most profitable option for any business. It does this by providing a tool for any company to work out how well it currently performs on various important social, environmental and ethical issues, how it compares with other firms, what better practices look like and how and when to adopt them. And at the same time it empowers people – as consumers, employees, investors etc – to identify and support businesses which are open, honest and trustworthy. Companies which wish to see real responsibility increase profitability and, in short, create a better kind of business for a better world.

  • Eating Better

    Email:

    Eating Better is a broad alliance working to help people move towards eating less meat and more food that’s good for us and good for the planet. We are calling for action by governments, the food industry and all those who can make a difference to help people eat a greater variety of plant-based foods and less meat; and to support farming that produces meat in ways that benefit the environment, health, global food security and animal welfare. Launched in July 2013, with the endorsement of celebrity chef and campaigner, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Eating Better brings together a growing number of supporting organisations and partner networks from a diverse range of fields including environment, animal welfare, public health, faith groups, campaigning, international development and responsible food. Eating Better’s vision is a world in which everyone values and has access to healthy, humane and sustainable diets. High meat consuming countries and individuals have reduced their consumption in line with health recommendations and GHG reduction targets. Meat is produced humanely and sustainably, its production provides sustainable livelihoods, environmental benefits and it is consumed in quantities consistent with good health and global resource use capacity.

  • Specialist Cheesemakers’ Association

    Email:

    The Specialist Cheesemakers Association (SCA) is an alliance of cheesemakers, retailers, wholesalers and others involved with artisan cheese, which was established to encourage excellence in cheesemaking.  It provides a forum for members to exchange ideas and represents the interests of members to the Government and media. The SCA is the first port of call for any retailer or cheesemaker with technical, health or hygiene problems, and in some instances, this may involve the association having to go out on a limb to support a member. It is vital that our members demonstrate their commitment to quality by having in place a Food Safety Management system and abiding by the SCA Assured Code of Best Practice. We will not jeopardise the reputation of the industry or the Association for a member who does not have these in place. The Specialist Cheesemakers Association was established in 1989 and its patron is HRH the Prince of Wales.

  • Slow Food UK

    Email:

    Slow Food is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. It was founded in 1989 in Italy. Slow Food UK aims to achieve long-term change in the thematic areas of biodiversity (preserving threatened foods and strengthening local economies through assisting small-scale producers and building short-supply chains), taste education (creating a better understanding and appreciation of the important connection between health, local food culture and agriculture) and food communities (connecting producers to consumers, creating awareness that showcases sustainable agriculture and artisan food production). This exchange of information, ideas, advice and practices takes place largely in three interconnected spheres: 1) at the national level among UK member groups and other collaborative actors; 2) at the international level linking UK groups to member groups around the world, including technical experts and other actors involved in food issues; and 3) by connecting and empowering farming and food communities in developed and developing countries – which is often refered to as the Terra Madre (Mother Earth) network – that are also impacted by the food choices and policies in the UK.
