Tons of Food Waste Avoided via Donation
The agricultural sector faces a number of environmental, social and governance (ESG) challenges including climate change, responsible land use and biodiversity, water stewardship and pollution, energy consumption, health and safety of workers and child or forced labor in certain commodity supply chains. Our Zero-Waste Inspired® ESG/Sustainability mandate attempts to meet these challenges head-on, utilizing innovative technology, advanced greenhouse growing techniques and local supply chain prowess & people to drive yields, lessen waste and reduce costs. This allows Edible Garden to put theory into practice – better demand planning, bio-based packaging & shrink saving displays for a reduced carbon footprint.
Our ESG/sustainability approach has resonated extremely well with both retailers and consumers who care about the environmental impact of the food supply chain, which we expect will help us further expand our growing distribution channels and drive demand for our products.
