JOIN Our Business Forum

Our Business Forum is a community of changemakers in food and farming businesses. Through a combination of in-person dinner meetings and online workshops, members come together to discuss latest challenges, exchange ideas and best practice, and support one another to make bold, positive changes.

The Business Forum provides a safe and trusted space to explore emerging, business-critical issues as part of an honest, supportive community. We bring a range of voices around the table to engage in free-flowing discussion under Chatham House rule. This gives members a rare opportunity to gain system-wide perspectives from right across the food supply chain.

We encourage frank sharing of insights and opinions, and hold space for peers to constructively challenge and support each-other. This gives leaders the confidence to make bold changes to their businesses, as well as embark on collective missions.

Expert speakers are invited to share insights at each meeting, providing members with unrivalled access to cutting-edge thinking. All meetings are held under Chatham House rule. We write concise, nonattributed reports to capture key insights and next steps, which are published publicly to inspire wider change.

Business Forum members are not members of the Food Ethics Council, the body responsible for governing the organisation. The terms and conditions of Business Forum membership have been designed to enable the Food Ethics Council to organise these educational events for business leaders, while preserving the Council’s independence. Terms and conditions of the Business Forum can be found here.
