Mission: The cornucopia institute is engaged in educational activities supporting the ecological principles and economic wisdom underlying sustainable and organic agriculture. Through research and investigations on agricultural and food issues, the cornucopia institute provides needed information to family farmers, consumers, stakeholders involved in the good food movement, and the media.
Programs: The cornucopia institute educates our more than 10,000 members (with farmers the dominant constituency), the general public, organic stakeholders, and the media on issues affecting the integrity of organic agriculture and food, sustainable and local food, and direct marketing via newsletters, our website, speaking engagements, journal articles, and research reports.
the cornucopia institute conducts in-depth and ongoing analysis of organic dairying, soy foods, infant formula, and organic eggs, with ongoing research into organic beef, meat birds, and materials used in organic food and agriculture.
the cornucopia institute monitors anti-organic agriculture groups and reports in the media and provides factual refutation, tracks developments in genetically modified agricultural plants and impacts on organic and sustainable food producers, and monitors and researches food safety issues.
I highly recommend this charity to anyone who cares about where their food comes from and the impact is has on society, the environment, and our own bodies.
I've been a supporter of the Cornucopia Institute since 2011, when I first used their Milk, Soy and Egg product lists to remove unhealthy and unethical food products from my home. The institute's determination to increasing the quality of food in our food chain is incredible, and membership with them has been continuously very educational.
