OrganicFoodSystemProgramme

Together with IFOAM Organics Int. And Beras Int. FQH initiated the Organic Food System Programme, OFSP (www.organicfoodsystem.net). FQH is the legal holder of this programme. FQH board members are furthermore coordinators of OFSP. The OFSP is a programme on taking and further developing the organic food system as a pilot model and living laboratory for sustainable food systems. We use the organic food system as a model to understand drivers of sustainable food consumption and to link this to real-world examples of sustainable production and consumption. It is important to understand that the OFSP will use the organic food system as a kind of window for exploration but not as the exclusive solution. Overall the central question is: how to make food systems more sustainable? The goal of OFSP is to learn from the organic food system as a living laboratory for sustainable food systems The programme intends to contribute to global activities such as IFOAM Organic 3.0 and brings together initiatives and stakeholders at international, national, regional and local levels. Recently the Sustainable Food System Programme’s Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC) endorsed the OFSP as one of eight "core initiatives" of the UN-10YFP Sustainable Food System Programme!
