The growth of consumer demand for organic food, products made with fair trade ingredients and represents a widening market for food producers who aim to produce nourishing food through sustainable and empowering methods. Manufacturers source ingredients from other companies that include employee wellbeing, social justice, and environmental sustainability into their mission — alongside the goal to produce the highest quality food products possible.
Sustainable food businesses often support organic agriculture. Innovative companies that deliver organic groceries along with traditional brick-and-mortar organic food stores have included the support of sustainable farming practices and protection of the environment into their mission. The business model looks not just to seek healthy profits, but to support the long-term resilience of its company, the planet, and the people the business affects.
Consumer demand for fair trade coffee, tea, wild honey and chocolate products, certified to guarantee workers’ rights, is quickly creating new household brand names. Often, companies that seek fair trade certification also support sustainable farming practices. The rapidly growing number of companies that source fair trade ingredients are revving up to become the industry norm by proving the business model a success and by creating an insatiable consumer demand for socially conscious products made to a higher quality standard.
The sustainable food movement has not skipped over a happier, more just way to imbibe. Organic breweries are filling glasses and and their local communities with good vibes, and organic wineries are bottling sustainable farming practices along with high floral notes for consumers around the world.
