Distinguish Your Brand with the Most Comprehensive Standard for Sustainable Agriculture

The Value of Certified Sustainably Grown®

Certified Sustainably Grown is a robust claim that supports your brand, helping you stand out in the marketplace and providing you access to expanded markets. The detailed framework provides a complete roadmap to build resilience while satisfying the growing and profitable market for food that is grown to the highest standards of environmental stewardship and social responsibility. It showcases the efforts of farmers to address today’s most important challenges such as water conservation, pollinator protection and climate adaptation. 

Certified Sustainably Grown is a respected, cost-effective option for achieving recognition without long waiting periods or licensing, marketing or per-box fees. The certification is applicable to agricultural crop production operations of all sizes around the world, including both conventional and organic. It is recognized by major retailers including Costco, Walmart, Aldi, Lidl and more. 

Producers whose operations are Certified Sustainably Grown can also make complimentary claims, all of which are built into the program requirements.
