Soil Association

Careers at Soil Association

The Soil Association Charity was formed in 1946 to pioneer a better world – one where we can all farm, eat and live healthily in balance with the environment.

Today, we’re still dedicated to making positive change happen through our charity. We’re farming, growing, buying, cooking and eating.

We’re campaigning, lobbying and certifying. We’re running research programmes that pave the way for change. And we’re inspiring millions of people to take their own step towards a sustainable future.

Through our trading subsidiary, Soil Association Certification, we work with over 6,000 businesses – including farmers, growers, foresters, caterers, food processors and manufacturers. The way these businesses operate achieves real change in the world – they farm without chemicals, make and serve healthier food, and educate their customers.
