Sustainability

A shared commitment between our brands

At The Fresh Food Group, we understand that we’re all connected and need to live together in balance. Every day, we care for the communities we live and work in, the people we work with and the earth we share.

Together, We Strive To:

  • Minimize and re-use water in processing
  • Use recycled material in our corrugated packaging
  • Recycle and compost waste
  • Use energy-efficient lighting and refrigeration wherever possible
  • Optimize delivery routes and truck loading for efficient fuel usage.
  • Reduce our environmental footprint

Responsible Sourcing

  • The efforts of our suppliers are equally important, so we choose to work with those who also value sustainability.
  • All of our growers and packers are required to follow “Good Agricultural Practices.”
  • We support sustainable farming practices.
  • We ensure our packaging is made from post-consumer recycled materials when possible.
