Sustainable Food Group provides organizations with a variety of services to advance sustainability on the farm and throughout the supply chain.

Program Development: Custom Projects and Services

We develop and implement projects and initiatives that are customized to your specific needs and circumstances, while integrating existing industry efforts where it makes sense. See Projects and Initiatives for examples of our collaborations with organizations, supply chains, third-party certifications and multi-stakeholder initiatives.

Third-Party Certification: Sustainability Standard

Developed by the Sustainable Food Group in collaboration with Azzule Systems and Primus Auditing Ops, the Sustainability Standard is a new third-party certification for specialty crop producers and processors to document and communicate performance across a range of sustainability issues including soil health, pest management, waste and recycling, water and energy conservation and environmental protection.

Risk Measurement: Pesticide Risk Tool

The Pesticide Risk Tool estimates the risk of negative impacts from pesticide applications on the environment, humans and pollinators. Ready access to this information helps reduce adverse impacts and improve environmental stewardship. Sustainable Food Group helps partners adapt the Pesticide Risk Tool to meet their needs including providing training and technical support to suppliers, growers and other project partners. The Pesticide Risk Tool is a project of the IPM Institute.
