When asked in 2010 "Who is your eco hero?" he replied: "I have two. Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, a man who didn’t let his public profile get in the way of his cause. Also, Prince Charles, the undisputed leader of the global movement for sustainable agriculture. Thank God for the Prince of Wales, that’s what I say. He’s an amazing man."

He was formerly the Director of the Soil Association but since he left that post has started a new project - The Sustainable Food Trust."
