The 2013 Soil Association conference...as it happened

By Caroline Scott-Thomas , 11-Oct-2013

FoodNavigator was at the Soil Association's annual conference in London this week, hearing about good food - both organic and otherwise - its production, distribution and consumption. In tweets, here is a taste of the event.

Day one focused on the role of food in public health, while day two was dedicated to how food production systems affect environmental health.

While the Soil Association is an NGO that promotes the interests of organic farming, chief executive Helen Browning set out a wider remit for the event, saying that she would like to organisation "to be known for what we are for", rather than against. She concluded the first day of the conference by acknowledging that there had been little explicit discussion of organic food, but added: "We need to start where people are."

For more detailed coverage of the event, check out the FoodNavigator website over the coming days.
