Background information and definitions
Food from many parts of the world now carries certification labels such as the LEAF Marque (Integrated Farm Management) or Rainforest Alliance, or labelling for shade-grown coffee or chocolate. These schemes are designed to allow biodiversity-friendly farming to attract a price premium, become more profitable and therefore spread, potentially benefiting biodiversity.
