Mission:

The Rural Advancement Foundation International - USA (RAFI-USA) cultivates markets, policies and communities that support thriving, socially just and environmentally sound family farms.


Programs:

RAFI’s Just Foods Program creates market options for family farmers who use just and sustainable production practices. We are a national leader in the campaign to create and maintain the integrity of the organic market, now a $20 billion industry in the U.S.  Organic agriculture provides a safe and nutritious food supply while providing economic opportunities for family farmers who would otherwise be forced out of business.  Building on the benefits of organic and fair trade, we are currently developing a model social justice standard for organic and sustainable agriculture. The Agriculture Justice Project is a collaborative initiative to develop and market a domestic label certifying fair pay and working conditions for all who labor in the food production chain, including farmers, farmworkers, independent distributors and processors, and retailers. The Just Foods program recognizes the importance of biological diversity in agriculture and the economic and legal liabilities for farmers associated with generically engineered products.  We are leading advocates for the revitalization of our nations public plant and animal breeding programs.
