Food Ethics Council

The Food Ethics Council believes that we can have a better, fairer food system: where it is easy to eat well and global hunger is a distant memory; where farmers and food producers make a decent living, animals are treated humanely, and the environment is respected.

The Food Ethics Council helps find a way through controversial issues and develops tools for ethical decision-making. Our members lead this work in a voluntary capacity, and our staff support them through research, analysis and advocacy.

We work on issues ranging from the power of the supermarkets, food poverty and workers’ rights, to air freight, genetic modification, meat and climate change, and water scarcity.
