About us

The Soil Association is the UK’s leading membership charity campaigning for healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use. The Charity has a wholly-owned subsidiary, Soil Association Certification Limited, the UK’s largest organic certification body. Uniquely we work across the whole food chain, giving us extensive learning from our activities with farmers and growers, processors and consumers, caterers and children. This enables us to test new approaches creating well-evidenced, practical solutions for a climate-friendly, healthier future where we transition to healthy and sustainable diets for all and a radically reduced fashion and forestry footprint.
