GROW Week

What have the world’s biggest food companies got to do with land grabs? More than you might think. With just five minutes you can take action and make a difference.

GROW Week is a time to celebrate both the food we eat and the land where this food is produced.

From October 14th to 18th, people around the world celibrated both the food we eat and the land where this food is produced. Together, we are calling for the change we need to build a better future, where everyone has enough to eat, always.

Companies like Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Associated British Foods (ABF) buy and produce huge amounts of sugar around the world. And as demand for sugar increases, so does the rush for land to grow it on.

We need your help to stop the sugar rush and make sure that farmers and others won't be pushed off their land.


As part of World Food Day 2013, Oxfam supporters in Toronto staged an event in front of Coca-Cola headquarters to publicize the issue of Land Grabs and Sugar.
