Eater's Guide to Food & Farm Sustainability


Many consumers are confused by the diversity of certification labels and green marketing claims in food and agriculture. However, there are only a handful of meaningful, third-party verified ecolabels for food and farm products. 

In partnership with other third-party certification programs, Food Alliance has produced the Eater's Guide to Food & Farm Sustainability to cut through the confusion and help consumers and commercial buyers make informed purchasing decisions.
