About FAI 

FAI offers practical direction and solutions for a better food system. We work with global food companies to improve animal health and welfare, restore vitality in our essential ecosystems, and develop greater resilience on our farms and in our communities.

We believe food production can and must be part of the solution. 

FAI have offices in England, Norway, Brazil and the US and a regenerative farming enterprise in Oxford, UK.
