Sustain, The Green House (former tenants of Development House) London

Sustain is the UK’s alliance for better food and farming, working with other charities large and small to improve the food we eat and the way it is produced, so that it is better for people and the planet. Last year was an extraordinary year for Sustain, responding rapidly to the evolving processes around Brexit, successfully getting amendments tabled to the UK Fisheries Bill and included in the UK Agriculture Bill; as well as coordinating public pressure on the emerging threats to food standards from trade deals; and the introduction of the Soft Drinks Industry Levy, which it coordinated the campaign for.

This year is Sustain's 20th anniversary. Beyond its work on Brexit and sugar, it hopes to scale up all of its campaigning, from community work through to tackling climate change.

Ethical Property synergy events, such as Development House’s previous garden club, allowed different organisations to find out about each other’s work and do something positive together.
