The Good Food Good Farming campaign organised a Disco Soup in front of the Council of the European Union today, calling on EU agriculture ministers to serve up a better future for farming. The campaign, made up of over 80 civil society groups (including seven Friends of the Earth groups), representing farmers, food activists, and environmental organizations, drew attention to the ongoing reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and delivered 100,000 signatures of EU citizens, supporting demands for a fair, green and healthy CAP reform.

Europe's current model of farming and food consumption is destroying the environment and hurting people. Industrial agriculture damages water supplies, wildlife and rural communities, and its impacts are felt heavily in developing countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns to stop the expansion of industrial agriculture with all its negative environmental and social impacts. We promote farming and food which respects the world's finite natural resources and is fair to farmers and consumers.
