Feeding the world

At a conference entitled "How can organic + fair trade guarantee global food security?" which took place on 22 April in Munich, delegates called for the strengthening of smallholder and organic agriculture in order to achieve long-term global food security. View conference report.

Meanwhile the Soil Association has produced a report, Telling porkies: the big fat lie about doubling food production which contests the assertion that we need to increase food production 50% by 2030, or that it needs to double by 2050. According to the Soil Association, the true figures are considerably lower. Sources quoted in the report say that with fairer diets and better distribution of food, organic farming could feed the world in 2050.
