A new regenerative agriculture platform is set to launch at next week’s Innovation Forum: The Future of Food virtual conference.
Franco Costantini, Managing Director at global consultancy and compliance organisation Peterson Control Union UK, will launch regenagri to delegates on 2 June as well as taking part in a discussion on regenerative agriculture and food supply chains, as part of the conference’s extensive programme of virtual events.
“In a growing movement, regenagri is a regenerative agriculture initiative aimed at securing the health of the land and the wealth of those who live on it,” says Mr Costantini.
“Through its membership platform, regenagri is designed for continuous improvement of agriculture practice, promoting holistic farming techniques that increase soil organic matter, encourage biodiversity and sequester CO2 from the atmosphere.”
The platform is aimed at farms and organisations looking to restore the land they work and make it carbon positive.
“We’ll empower farmers and organisations to transition towards more ecologically sustainable practices via the regenagri digital hub, consultancy and certification.”
Members of regenagri can gain numerous benefits, Mr Costantini said, including improved yield quality, greater access to markets and data in regenerative agriculture and accreditation from a global certifying body.
“Peterson Control Union Group seeks to bring together supporters of regenerative agriculture to address issues around soil degradation and the climate crisis, and implement sustainable strategies in food and farming sectors,” said Mr Costantini.
