Agriculture Our vision is of farming which respects the world’s finite resources and is fair to farmers and consumers

27 March 2017

More than 200 organisations have today raised their objections to the planned mergers of six giant agriculture corporations.

27 January 2017

Last Saturday, 130 tractors led 18,000 people demanding an urgent shift away from destructive industrial agriculture across the streets of Berlin.

The colourful march was led under the banner of "agribusiness, hands off our food!" and was part of the annual "Wir haben es satt" (we've had enough) demonstration. With the world's largest agribusiness giants planning to merge the corporate threat to our food system has never been greater.

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.
