Wales Real Food and Farming Conference

An independent conference on sustainable food and farming

24-26 November 2021

As national governments discuss our future at COP26, it’s a vital time for all of us to step up and do our bit. The third Wales Real Food and Farming Conference will take place on 24-26 November and the organisers hope that everyone who wants to create a new vision for food and farming in Wales will want to join in.

As well as guest speakers (Prof Tim Lang, Prof Lois Mansfield and Adam Jones, or Adam yn yr Ardd) there will be a full programme of presentations and discussions covering farming, nutrition, public health and policy. Highlights include treating food as medicine, responding to controversial topics such as intensive poultry units, why GMOs aren’t green, and growing and marketing more fruit and nuts in Wales.
 
The conference will also investigate the potential of the new Community Food Strategy for Wales, consider cooperative models for food chains and ask how to bring more young people into farming. Alongside this will be informal networking sessions and a public debate on land use. Last year ‘s conference proved how interactive an online event can be and produced a series of recordings which were made available for free, reaching many more people.

This year, the conference is being sponsored by Food and Drink Wales, and the programme shows how good practice all along the food supply chain can help create a fair and healthy society. The UK’s largest certifier of organic land, Organic Farmers & Growers, are also sponsoring the conference for the third time.
