  • Party Crashers

    How Oxfam supporters rallied and made a big noise for climate action

  • Make a big noise

    Join 24 hours of global action and send a big noise to Kellogg and General Mills!

  • Are General Mills and Kellogg silent accomplices to a warming planet

    Oxfam's latest Behind the Brands action is focused on getting the ‘Big 10’ food and beverage companies to step off the sidelines and do more to combat climate change – both in their own supply chains and through their influence with other industries and governments. We singled out General Mills and Kellogg as two companies that are lagging behind others on climate and challenged them to step up and lead the way to do more.

  • Four Steps Food Companies can take to Help Stop Climate Change

    No company is too big to listen to its customers. When enough of us speak out, companies listen. Last year more than 400,000 of you called on companies to do more for women in their supply chains. They listened. Then you spoke up about land grabs in companies’ supply chains. They listened. Now we need you to stand up and insist that the brands we love do more to address the single biggest threat to fighting hunger-- climate change!

  • Pushing PepsiCo to the Max on Land Grabs

    When enough of us speak out, companies listen. Today PepsiCo proved this.

  • How Coke can use its land rights commitments for communities right now

    Ideally, a policy commitment to eliminate land grabs leads to practice change which leads, in turn, to big impacts in the lives of communities. But to state the obvious: policy commitments are worthless without the hard, gritty messy work of putting them into practice.

  • You spoke and Coca Cola listened

    What does it take to make a global sugar giant to promise to improve its policies on land? You. And more than 225,000 others.

  • Infographic sources

  • Coke Pepsi and ABF make sure your sugar lead to land grabs

    Too often, the sugar in your favourite food and drinks is sourced by kicking farmers and their families off their land. This leaves people homeless and hungry. But you can change this.

    On Wednesday 2nd October we will launch the next phase of Behind the Brands. The details of this are top-secret until launch, but our exclusive teaser video gives a sneak preview of the campaign to come.

    Over 120,000 people taking action.  The world’s ten biggest food and beverage companies.  And one groundbreaking campaign. Combine these ingredients and what do you get? The beginnings of a significant shift towards a fairer food system for all.

  • Will your favourite brand make it to the top of the scorecard

    We’re already seeing companies committing to do business better. That’s because of you - but there’s more we can do to put the pressure on through Twitter and Facebook.

  • Power of you

    Two months. That is all it took for chocolate lovers and social justice activists to stand up to three of the biggest food companies in the world and create positive change in the food system.
