Greener Fields Together™ documents gains in sustainability

More of the fresh produce headed to restaurant kitchens and grocery stores nationwide is now verifiably "greener" and more sustainably raised. This accomplishment is thanks to Greener Fields Together, the sustainability and local produce initiative created by the PRO*ACT produce supply-chain management company, which works with partner farms to implement and track continuous, farm-to-fork sustainability improvements. Via independent verification service SureHarvest, Greener Fields Together has documented significant sustainability improvements made by four of its national farm partners – D'Arrigo Bros. Co. of California, Mission Produce, Grimmway Farms and Rainier Fruit Company.

"The strides being made by Greener Fields Together national farm partners are truly impressive," says Max Yeater, president of PRO*ACT. "These are large, high-volume, sophisticated farming organizations that supply fresh fruit and vegetables to foodservice and consumer kitchens nationwide and beyond. Every move they make to improve the sustainability of their operations has a real impact on their products, their consumption of natural resources, and ultimately on the health of the planet. We're proud to be a catalyst for such change and will continue to verify and celebrate their improvements."
