We’re a group of food, farming, nutrition and environment experts who believe in a healthy, balanced and sustainable diet, where all foods have a role to play.

There are a lot of mixed messages in the media around food and nutrition, meaning it’s easy to get confused. That’s why we’ve started the Eat Balanced campaign, to provide an evidence-based antidote to the misinformation.

We know that the food choices we make are integral to our health and wellbeing, and a balanced diet is one that offers variety, nourishment and enjoyment, while remaining in harmony with the environment.

Here in the UK, we have a balanced approach to farming, and we want to shine a light on that too. Our farmers are united in their ambition to bring high-quality, naturally nutrient-rich produce to people and are continuously driving towards a carbon-neutral food industry with high welfare standards at its heart.
