Our mission is to build the capacity of the organic food trade to transition to sustainable business models. SFTA serves as a hub for businesses to learn, report, improve performance, and share best practices.
Sustainable Food Trade Association membership provides companies with support and resources to integrate sustainability from farm to retail. This support includes educational tools, annual consultations, analytic modules, networking and leadership recognition to define, measure, and improve sustainability performance.
SFTA offers two kinds of services – consulting and in-office sustainability trainings – tailored to your needs. Available to non-members and members. Discounted fees for members.
SFTA Sustainability Snapshot is a dynamic set of SFTA core metrics and actionable benchmarks. The 40 sustainability metrics provide easy reporting, benchmark comparisons, as well as a customized analysis of your company’s progress.

SFTA Knowledge Network Series: Sustainability’s Role in Crisis
All natural product sectors have been impacted by COVID-19 and the movement for racial equality. With some of the dust settling, SFTA is calling its members to gather as a community and share their thoughts, resources, and questions on how sustainability can be a resource during times of crisis. SFTA’s Knowledge Network series – Sustainability’s Role During Crisis – explores the many ways that SFTA members have adjusted to these calls for action. On June 24th and July 14th, members will have the chance to learn from each other about labor safety protocols, community support programs, and how businesses can build in platforms to scale racial and ethnic equality in their organizations. Discussion will be led briefly by subject matter experts who pave the way for members to share how their companies are navigating this new landscape. The series will help SFTA members re-connect in our new socially distanced world, and identify the new triple-bottom-line practices (and measurements, of course!) that SFTA member-leaders are developing for the long haul.
Want to be a part of this thought leadership? Please register here for the June 24th session, and register here for the July 14th session!
