What We Do
The Soil Association was formed in 1946 to create a better world – one where we farm responsibly, eat healthily and live in balance with the environment.
Today we’re still dedicated to making positive change happen.
Our work is broadly-focused – this is because there isn’t one solution to the problems facing our food culture.
Everything we do champions organic principles and practice, to secure the health and vitality of people, farm animals and nature.
We work to make good food the easy choice for everyone across the UK, whoever and wherever they are, through our Food for Life work.
We support farmers and growers to research and tackle the most serious food and farming challenges, through projects such as Innovative Farmers and Future Farming Scotland. And we give the next generation of organic farmers the opportunity to learn and grow through our Future Growers scheme.
We also engage with thousands of businesses through Soil Association Certification, to bring our organic and ecological principles to life.
We operate as a charity and as a not-for-profit business through Soil Association Certification.
Together, along with our supporters, we aim to build a world where people, animals and the planet can thrive.
