  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Urban Bees Ltd

  • Borough Market

    Email:

    Borough Market is rich with history, but it remains as relevant now as it has ever been. As London’s oldest food market, it has been serving the people of Southwark for 1,000 years, and that extraordinary heritage is an important part of its appeal. But this is not a museum piece—it is a dynamic, ever-changing institution; a participant in the wider debates around what we eat and where it comes from; a place where food is talked about almost as enthusiastically as it is consumed. First and foremost, though, it is a source of genuinely exceptional produce. Many of the Market’s stallholders are themselves producers: the farmer who reared the animal, the fisherman who caught the fish, the baker who baked the bread. Other traders have built their reputations on seeking out small-scale artisan producers and bringing their wares to Borough. Together, the Market’s stalls, shops and restaurants reflect London’s status as a truly global city, with traditional British produce sitting alongside regional specialities from around the world. Borough Market is a riot of colours, smells and human engagement. The traders—a vast repository of culinary knowledge—are only too happy to share their expertise with shoppers, or else just pass the time of day. Their voices are added to by the chefs, food writers, campaigners and teachers who help make t
