"Even those who are big foodies, who watch what they eat, don't actually think about what is in their wine glass.

Peter Melchett | Posted 23.12.2016 | UK
Peter Melchett

In other UK industries it is generally accepted that some products are higher quality and therefore cost more, without this being seen as 'hostility' - why not in farming? It really is time for non-organic farming in the UK to stop treating any description of quality in food production as a threat to the whole industry, rather than welcome diversity.

Last weekend I ventured out of Newcastle-under-Lyme to the big city. No, not Manchester or Birmingham, but that London. I tied on my money belt, and packed my How-to-Talk-to-Southerners phrase book.

Besma Whayeb

Local food naturally fits into a sustainable lifestyle: less transport, and less time in storage or in a shop means less energy wasted on the food. On top of that, local food often goes hand in hand with organic food too, meaning you're lowering demand for chemical-laden groceries.

As someone who cares deeply about the planet we leave behind for future generations. I find myself thinking about how can veganism- a movement for environmental and social justice for humans and animals avoid falling into the traps of 21st century throwaway capitalism?

I've decided to do my best to "eat kind". Like sexuality believe there is no black and white and that labels aren't really helpful any more. Fluidity is. So I'm dispensing with "vegan"/ "vegetarian"/ "pescetarian" etc. If I want to eat some cheese or yoghurt I will.

We are a nation slowly becoming more interested with health, food, training, sport and anyone that goes to the effort of training each day will know the level of intensity and often pain that is required to burn those cals!
