A food system that is good for people and nature is possible and the big supermarkets must help to create it.  

If you share our vision for a thriving, sustainable Australian agriculture industry which nurtures landscapes, supports, communities, and rewards farmers, please add your name to this simple ask of Woolworths and Coles: 

We love this country. Our unique landscapes and wildlife are like nowhere else on earth. Australian nature is part of our identity and culture. We rely on it for clean air and water, for food, and our economy. But Australia's food system is failing nature. 

The forests, wetlands, and rivers we love and depend on are being destroyed at a dangerous rate. The way we grow our food is a major cause of this nature destruction. Every year hundreds of thousands of hectares of habitat for animals like the koala and gang-gang cockatoo are bulldozed to make room to produce more beef. Much of it will end up in a supermarket fridge. 

We should be able to walk into a Woolworths or Coles to pick up food for our families and know that it is not linked to the bulldozing of our wildlife’s homes. Currently we cannot. But you can change that. 

We call on Woolworths and Coles to commit to selling only deforestation-free beef, stop the destruction of ecosystems, and support farmers that are producing food while protecting and restoring nature on their land. 

Nature needs us now. It needs you now. 

 

Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of beef is sold in our supermarkets each year – if Woolworths and Coles stopped allowing deforestation and nature destruction in their supply chains, they would change the rate of Australian bulldozing overnight. 

Add your name today. We need to show both supermarkets that the community wants to see them act immediately to put a stop to the destruction of more precious native habitat.

also think about the impact of food miles from the increase in imported processed food and associated land clearing in the countries where you source the product.

I always choose the free range chicken and pork options. I would love to be able to choose deforestation-free beef and dairy. You have immense power. Please use it for good.

We must urgently stop deforestation for beef supply – we need to protect the forests for the sake of endangered animals and climate change.
