Food Otherwise - Voedsel Anders
Towards fair and sustainable food and agriculture systems
The Food Otherwise Movement strives for sustainable food and agriculture systems to manage soils, landscapes, plants, animals and water responsibly. We are working towards food and agriculture systems in which farmers and citizens have a greater voice. We want fair, remunerative prices for farmers everywhere in the world, as well as plentiful, nutritious food for everyone. This involves working towards food sovereignty as well as food security.
Voedsel Anders (Food Otherwise) is a network of farmers, fisherfolk, scientists, beekeepers, students, artists, professionals, policymakers, journalists and other active citizens in the Netherlands and Belgium engaged in building healthy food systems. While the current agrifood system is depleting the soil and biodiversity, causes major greenhouse gas emissions and squeezes farmers out of business, many local, national and international initiatives show that there is another way. Around the world, we can feed ourselves sustainably with good and healthy food that is produced regionally, with fair prices and dignified lives for farmers, fishermen and citizens, while respecting the environment and biodiversity. This is the system they promote.
