Compassion in World Farming announces 2020 Sustainable Food and Farming Award

Compassion in World Farming is inviting entries to its 2020 Sustainable Food and Farming Award established to recognise producers and businesses that are taking steps to produce meat, dairy and eggs in ways that protect, improve and restore wildlife and the environment.

Compassion is seeking projects that involve livestock production and that demonstrate a positive impact on one or more of the following: wildlife, wildlife habitats, soil, conservation, forests, climate change, water quality, reducing use of chemicals and pesticides, reducing reliance on imported animal feeds.

Philip Lymbery, Chief Executive of Compassion in World Farming, says, “Our Sustainable Food and Farming Award seeks to bring greater recognition for farmers and businesses pioneering nature-friendly farming. In this way, we encourage farming that nourishes people whilst allowing nature and farm animals to thrive, thereby preserving the natural world as our life-support system for the future.”

Entries will be judged by a panel chaired by Philip Lymbery and which includes Graham Harvey, agricultural journalist and previous story editor of the long running BBC radio drama The Archers. The winners of the Sustainable Food and Farming Award will be announced at Compassion’s 2020 Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards ceremony.

The deadline for applications for the Sustainable Food and Farming Award is 15th May 2020.
