For the past five year, SFTA has provided invaluable feedback to improve our annual Sustainability Report. They offer resources, education, tools, and networking opportunities to natural products companies. Thanks to SFTA, we've had the chance to both share best practices and learn from others. I was so impressed with the organization, I decided to volunteer on their Member Resource Committee and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the staff, board, and other sustainably-minded companies.

Lundberg Family Farms has worked with the Sustainable Food Trade Association (SFTA) since its conception. The SFTA prompted Lundberg to capture important, consistent metrics and begin reporting progress annually. The networking opportunities and community that the SFTA brings together is helpful for accomplishing sustainability goals and learning from like-minded companies.

We have enjoyed working with the SFTA for the last 10 years and look forward to many more!
