SAFE – Safe Food Advocacy Europe was created in 2015 out of a concern for public health related to food issues. One of the most influential factors of the EU’s food legislation is lobbying, indeed the large majority of EU legislation is influenced by lobbyists. There are more than lobbyists in Brussels, 70% of them are working for businesses, only 10% work for NGOs. Thus, SAFE was created to ensure that consumer’s health and concerns remain at the core of the EU’s food legislation. SAFE is the only NGO in Brussels focusing only on the protection and representation of EU consumers in the food sector. SAFE monitors the EU’s food legislation process and cooperates with EU legislators and its actors to draft comprehensive food regulations. Mission Strengthening the voice of civil society in the EU debate over food regulation, thereby reinforcing participatory democracy in the EU. Increasing public awareness of food safety issues, noticeably by organising training programmes and seminars designed to allow citizens to make informed decisions on the food they eat by learning how to read food labelling (additives, food colourings, MSG). SAFE is giving training to children and teenager in school to reduce excessive sugar and food colorants consumption. Supporting independent research by identifying priority areas for research and raising funds.

Agriculture & Progress, a platform where the agricultural and primary food processing industry join forces for sustainable agricultural production.Integrated and innovative crop production techniques, including the use of plant protection products in Integrated Pest Management, have been used by European farmers for many years and are constantly being improved. These reliable and safe tools allow farmers to meet production standards both in terms of quantity and in terms of quality.Society is however, more and more critical and raises questions on agricultural practices. We have heard those concerns and are putting the platform at the heart of the debate, taking into account the demands and expectations of consumers.As it is clear that progress is needed in the safety linked to the use of plant protection products, we work towards ensuring the use of safe products for farmers, the environment and consumers. In that context, we work to improve practices to move towards a minimum of inputs while trying to continue to improve our sustainability. Farmers like progress and are ready to welcome new innovative techniques. However, it needs to be understood that research, studies, trials, implementation and the overall transfer of knowledge is a process that takes time and cannot be done overnight.The aim of our transversal, European platform is to provide society and decision makers in a pedagogic way with answers and suggestions on the needs and challenges of guaranteeing sustainable agricultural production and the important role of innovation in this context. Agriculture & Progress aims to establish a strong communication with civil society, local networks and the media.Confronted with bans and restrictions on the use of plant protection products and new breeding techniques (NBTs), the farming and primary food processing communities’ capacity to sustain production and to further improve competitiveness and good agricultural practices is jeopardised in the short and medium term. Our goal is to plead for the development of a solid regulatory framework that guarantees an appropriate adaptation, a balance between health, environmental protection, and qualitative agricultural production whilst guaranteeing an adequate level of income for the farming community.

Are the UK Government 'Taking the biscuit' when it comes to ultra-processed food?
Yesterday
The Soil Association...
The Soil Association is calling on UK Government to address the overconsumption of ultra-processed food. Sign our petition today https://act.soilassociation.org/taking-the-biscuit? Most of the food eaten in the UK is ultra-processed, making up a shocking 65% of children's diets. Many of these everyday items might surprise you, but ultra-processed foods carry serious health risks. A growing body of new scientific evidence links these foods with heart, kidney and liver disease, cancer, depression, obesity and even early death. But the government continues to dodge the problem, slapping its good choice badge on ultra-processed products, ignoring their health impacts. The NHS food scanner app even promotes them as healthy swaps. This helps big food corporations rake in the profits, with large marketing budgets taking advantage of strained family finances. Children are at particular risk. These foods typically have little to no nutritional value and their industrial processing and chemical ingredients make them easy and quick to eat without filling us up, encouraging us to eat more. So why is the government suggesting good choice swaps to people which are bad for them but good for company profits? They must stop taking the biscuit, remove their good choice badge from these products, and support people to eat less ultra-processed food. Join our call for urgent government action, to address the overconsumption of ultra-processed food. Sign our petition today https://act.soilassociation.org/taking-the-biscuit?

The International Initiative "4 per 1000", launched by France on December 1st, 2015, at the COP 21, consists of federating all voluntary stakeholders of the public and private sectors (national governments, local and regional governments, companies, trade organizations, NGOs, research facilities, etc.) under the framework of the Lima-Paris Action Plan (LPAP). The Initiative aims to demonstrate that agriculture, particularly agricultural soils, can play a crucial role in food security and climate change. Supported by solid scientific documentation, this initiative invites all partners to state or implement some practical actions on soil carbon storage and the type of practices to achieve this (e.g., agroecology, agroforestry, conservation agriculture, landscape management, etc.). The initiative aims to encourage stakeholders to transition towards a productive, highly resilient agriculture based on the appropriate management of lands and soils, creating jobs and incomes, and ensuring sustainable development.

The Soil Association is calling on UK Government to address the overconsumption of ultra-processed food. Sign our petition today https://act.soilassociation.org/taking-the-biscuit? Most of the food eaten in the UK is ultra-processed, making up a shocking 65% of children's diets. Many of these everyday items might surprise you, but ultra-processed foods carry serious health risks. A growing body of new scientific evidence links these foods with heart, kidney and liver disease, cancer, depression, obesity and even early death. But the government continues to dodge the problem, slapping its good choice badge on ultra-processed products, ignoring their health impacts. The NHS food scanner app even promotes them as healthy swaps. This helps big food corporations rake in the profits, with large marketing budgets taking advantage of strained family finances. Children are at particular risk. These foods typically have little to no nutritional value and their industrial processing and chemical ingredients make them easy and quick to eat without filling us up, encouraging us to eat more. So why is the government suggesting good choice swaps to people which are bad for them but good for company profits? They must stop taking the biscuit, remove their good choice badge from these products, and support people to eat less ultra-processed food. Join our call for urgent government action, to address the overconsumption of ultra-processed food. Sign our petition today https://act.soilassociation.org/taking-the-biscuit?

Species-rich grasslands are particularly valuable for wildlife and support a variety of rare species of plants and insects. Despite their value, we have lost approximately 97% of these grasslands. With grazing management key to creating and maintaining species-rich grasslands, landowners are core to regenerating this vital habitat. Innovative, more sustainable, grazing management practices can promote the botanical diversity of grass swards and reduce input costs.
