Food sovereignty is the right of peoples, communities and countries to define their own policies for agriculture, trade and food as long as they are ecologically sustainable, contribute to social justice and do not restrict the possibilities for others to do the same.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe is working to make food sovereignty a reality in Europe and to help people have their voices heard about what they eat.
