Farmers' stories

How we work:

Greenpeace Food and Agriculture Campaign is committed to promoting agriculture that benefits the environment, farmers and consumers, and the production of safe and healthy foods to meet human needs.

We investigate, expose and confront the global threat posed by industrial agriculture to the natural environment and food security.

We challenge governments and industry to end their support for destructive agriculture and to preserve and enhance farmers' abilities to produce food in environmentally and socially responsible ways.

We promote socially and ecologically responsible farming methods by which quality food is produced without compromising quality of life or the environment.

We encourage consumers to buy food products produced in socially and ecologically responsible ways.
