The Food Ethics Council develops the knowledge and tools to make ethical thinking standard practice in food and agriculture, in policy, business and everyday life. It works towards a food system that meets public needs and respects public values – a food system that is secure, sustainable, just and humane.
The Council’s work includes:<ul>
<li>Food Ethics magazine – essential reading on one key issue each quarter, containing cutting edge analysis, debate, reviews and upcoming events;
<li>Business Forum – an opportunity for senior food executives to gain expert insight into ethical issues that are becoming core business concerns. Hosted by leading opinion formers, each of the bi-monthly meetings meets over dinner to discuss key issues;
<li>Publications – producing reports on key issues of the day, from food distribution to food packaging and many more;
<li>Ethical tools – the publication ‘Ethics – a toolkit for business’ introduces business leaders and policy makers to key ideas in ethics and provides a framework for making better decisions;
<li>Workshops and events – organising policy workshops, conferences and seminars, independently and in partnership with others.</ul>
