Food Sovereignty

Food Sovereignty

Corporate hands off our food

Food sovereignty is the right of people to determine and control their own food production systems, and the right to nutritious, ecologically-produced and culturally-appropriate food. Friends of the Earth groups work with communities, farmers, indigenous people and fisher folk for an overhaul of current international trade and investment so that agriculture sustains people and not corporations.

No to GMOs, yes to local seeds

We work to safeguard GMO-free agricultureand to ensure that people around the world have the right to choose food that is free from genetically modified organisms. We campaign against biopiracy and the patenting of seeds and other life forms, and for the rights of farmers and indigenous peoples to save their own seeds.
