Event Details

Join us for an evening of debate, celebration, and the opportunity to meet some of the UK’s leading sustainable food and farming organisations and initiatives. Sustain's AGM starts at 6pm; the public event with guest speakers starts at 7pm.

We are pleased to welcome Felicity Lawrence, our good friend, investigative journalist and author, who will be our special guest speaker. The theme will be will be Food and farming – pay and poverty: How can the food system ensure decent livelihoods and decent food for all, from producers to citizens? We will also include consideration of what we might win (or lose) through the Brexit process to make this possible.

Felicity Lawrence has done so much to reveal the truth about the way much of our food is produced, and its consequences for the pay and well-being of workers, our health, animal welfare and the environment. She is a special correspondent for The Guardian newspaper and author of the bestselling exposés of the food industry, Not on the Label and Eat Your Heart Out. Felicity will reflect on her experiences, and what she thinks should change to improve pay and working conditions in the food industry. A panel of Sustain members from across the range of issues that the alliance covers will be invited to give considered responses, followed by audience questions and lively debate.

Starting at 6pm, our members' AGM will be followed by a networking evening at 7pm, which we are opening to everyone. Talks will finish about 8.30pm, after which there will be an opportunity to meet, mingle, exchange views and information with attendees, over sustainable drinks and nibbles.
