Fairfood International is a vital part of the global movement of people who are passionate about creating change towards a sustainable food and beverage industry. Established in 2002 by volunteers, Fairfood has evolved into a professional non-profit organisation supported by many volunteers. Currently, we are encouraging more than 2,500 food and beverage companies in over 80 countries to adopt sustainable business practices.
Fairfood International envisions a future with a fair and sustainable food system, which is able to feed the world, in a way that preserves the environment for future generations, respects human rights and secures a thriving economy for all. Companies will acknowledge, meet and go beyond the expectations and requirements laid out in international conventions and agreements.
We believe that when all food and beverage companies acknowledge their responsibility and take steps to make the impact of the supply chains of their products a positive one; there will be concrete and measurable improvements in the livelihoods of people and in the quality of the environment. By addressing social, environmental and economic issues throughout their supply chains, companies will have a significant impact on poverty reduction, environmental protection, natural resource management and economic development.
By the year 2020, Fairfood International will be the leading voice of the global movement to promote sustainability in the global food system. Through proactive dialogues, Fairfood will have incentivised food and beverage companies to engage in fair and sustainable business practices. We will have contributed to clear and measurable changes from the companies in their policies and practices to ensure that they take full responsibility for the sustainability of their supply chains.
We have made it our mission to be a catalyst for change towards a fair and sustainable food system. We approach this mission by advocating for the sustainability of food and beverage supply chains worldwide. We encourage companies in the food system to take significant and measurable steps towards making their supply chains sustainable.
We need your support!
We can only realise our vision with the help and support of volunteers, conscious consumers, partner organisations, donors, businesses and other allies. With your support, we can continue to advocate food and beverage companies, conduct research on the food industry, and run campaigns that raise awareness and make the necessary changes on important issues.
