Safe Food Foundation Directors and Founders

The two key directors of The Safe Food Foundation are co-founders Scott Kinnear and Clive Blazey, both of whom are passionate about making food safe and protecting the rights of farmers and consumers to choose what they grow and eat.

The Safe Food Foundation’s Director, Scott Kinnear, originally studied Agricultural Science and has been a pivotal figure in the organic food industry for the last 20 years. The founder and owner of Organic Wholefoods, a veritable Melbourne organic institution with two stores in the city, Scott is the former and founding Chair of the Organic Federation of Australia, former director of Biological Farmers of Australia and former Chair of the Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies (CERES). Scott is the former Director of Hepburn Wind from start until November 2011 and the current Director of  the Safe Food Institute and Foundation.

Clive Blazey is the Executive Chairman and founder of The Digger’s Club, Australia’s largest garden club, and the author of no less than five books. Founded in 1978, The Digger’s Club is ‘anti-G.M., anti-industrial agriculture and pro-organic, campaigning to increase the growing of food in our backyards.’ Also laying claim to the most abundant range of heirloom vegetables, fruit plants and cottage flowers in Australia, The Digger’s Club teaches gardening, runs workshops, publishes books and  boasts two historic gardens including ‘Heronswood’ which ‘has two buildings listed on the Register of National Estate.’

    Rural Livng Expo – March 15 and 16. Would love some one to exhibit on the principles and benefits of the Safe Food Foundation. WE are an emerging food and wine region and a lot of our residents have an interest in food origins, back yard gardening and being self sufficent etc.
    I have more information on the expo and would love to know who to send it to if you would be interested in coming over either this year or next year.

    Kind Regards
