Sustainable food and healthy diets

One of the barriers to the wider uptake of more sustainable food production systems and healthier diets is a lack of understanding of the often complex issues relating to what constitutes sustainable production, what constitutes a healthy diet and how these two aspects can be better integrated so that healthy food consumption is both compatible with, and helps to encourage, sustainable food production and distribution.

At the same time there is also a very strong interest amongst farmers about what constitutes more sustainable food production and how this can be embraced at both a practical and an economic level. We approach the twin issues of sustainable production and sustainable consumption by raising awareness and improving understanding amongst the public, food producers and key influencers, about the central components of sustainable, healthy food systems and diets, so that more informed choices can be made about what to eat and how to farm.
