Feeding Britain From The Ground Up

Exploring the potential of a UK-wide transition to sustainable and regenerative farming practices

What should I eat to be healthy and sustainable? It’s a question that more and more people are asking, but perhaps unsurprisingly, the dietary recommendations vary so much that many of us are utterly confused about how we should respond.

This report from the Sustainable Food Trust seeks to provide answers to that question, based on the presumption that, at least broadly, we should relate our future food consumption to the output of sustainable farming systems in the parts of the world in which we live.

It is hoped that this report will go some way towards demonstrating that if we switched to farming systems operating inside so called ‘planetary boundaries’, we would still be able to produce enough key staple foods to maintain current levels of self-sufficiency, providing we ate differently, ate less and wasted less. If we did this, a UK-wide farmland transition to sustainable and regenerative food production could enable our future farming and food systems to move from being part of the problem to being part of the solution.
