For Commercial Food Buyers
Business interest in sustainability is increasing and consumer interest in food issues is at an all-time high.
Are your customers concerned about quality, health, the authenticity of products, and their connection to the people and the land that provide our food?
Do they ask where products come from, or how you support social and environmental responsibility in food and agriculture?
Food Alliance can help. When you ask for Food Alliance Certified products, you signal to suppliers that you support standards for social and environmental responsibility.
Demand for third-party certification creates incentives for suppliers to improve farming and food handling practices to meet the evolving needs of your customers.
