Sustainable Food Trust (website)

The Sustainable Food Trust is a UK registered charity that was founded by Patrick Holden in 2011 in response to the worsening human and environmental crises that are associated with the vast majority of today’s food and farming systems. They work to accelerate the transition to more sustainable food and farming systems that nourish the health of both people and planet. Informed by work on True Cost Accounting and building on the proposition that you can’t manage what you don’t measure, they believe that we need a ‘common language’ for measuring farm sustainability, and a globally harmonised framework which takes a holistic approach to measuring sustainability on farms. Their Food and Farming 5-point plan involved everyone playing their part in bringing about a transformation in food and farming: Short and long term Government Action; Global Farm Metric (GFM) to empower farmers; A Green Finance plan from banks and the private sector; Retailers to provide guaranteed prices; Consumers and citizens able to make easy and informed choices;
