The Sustainable Food Trade Association is a non-profit trade association that represents North American, mission-aligned organic food companies.  Our membership is comprised of a diverse mix of organic producers, processors, manufacturers, distributors and retailers.  We support our members in implementing innovative sustainable business practices across the supply chain, from farm to retail.  Our mission is to build the capacity of the organic food trade to transition to sustainable business models.

What We Do

We understand that the growth of the organic foods trade requires that the same values used to produce organic foods be used in conducting the business of selling them.  Implementing these sustainable practices can create strategic advantages, positive messaging and help to increase market share. The Sustainable Food Trade Association serves as one of the primary resources in promoting and implementing sustainable business practices in the organic trade through our partnerships with industry businesses, non-profits, and trade associations.  SFTA supports members specifically in the following ways:

  • Setting a sustainability strategy
  • Benchmarking current performance
  • Collaboratively developing industry specific metrics
  • Reporting tools and templates specific for the organic food trade
  • Providing a hub for members to share results and best practices
  • Co-develop leading industry tools and resources
  • Industry education via webinars, workshops, articles, presentations
