Hon Theresa Villiers MP, who committed to the conference that Brexit would not result in any dilution of the current high standards in environmental protection, food safety, and animal welfare; as well as Henry Dimbleby, who spoke on the challenges facing the UK's food systems, and outlined the next steps of the new National Food Strategy.

Speakers at ORFC included representatives from Sustain, The Soil Association, Food Foundation, the Green Party, Extinction Rebellion, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and many others.
