Organics International, also known as IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Movements), of which OCA is a member, have published a new book called True Cost Accounting for Food: Balancing the Scale.
As IFOAM states, based on more than a decade of research:
“Calls are coming from all quarters that the food system is broken and needs a radical transformation. A system that feeds many yet continues to create both extreme hunger and diet-related diseases, and one which has significant environmental impacts, is not serving the world adequately. This volume argues that True Cost Accounting in our food system can create a framework for a systemic shift. What sounds on the surface like a practice relegated to accountants is ultimately a call for a new lens on the valuation of food and a new relationship with the food we eat, starting with the reform of a system out of balance.”
