LEAF sets new target that will see 85% of all UK fruit and vegetables grown more sustainably
ON the eve of the global climate change summit, COP26 next week, LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) has announced it has set a new target for 85% of all UK fruit and vegetables to be grown more sustainably. The target will see the amount of UK fresh produce grown by LEAF Marque certified businesses almost doubling within the next five years.
LEAF, which was founded in 1991, is now the leading global sustainable farming organisation. It is committed to working with farmers, retailers and brands across the food supply chain to drive the delivery of more regenerative, nature-based farming and achieve this goal. Meeting this target will significantly contribute to positive action to combat climate change.
