Building a Sustainable Corn Ingredient Supply
LifeLine Foods is focusing on building sustainable business practices not only within the primary business, but also look down the supply chain working with our farmer owners. We are proud that their progressive farmer owners participate in globally recognized sustainable agriculture practices and continue to evolve their businesses ensuring long term viability.
LifeLine’s Sustainable Program
The LifeLine Foods’s sustainability program focuses on evaluating the current environmental, social and economic platforms. We measure, we report, we verify. The program is dynamic and will continue to evolve throughout the coming years.
As part of LifeLine’s commitment to grow their sustainability initiatives, On March 31, 2016 LifeLine joined Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture. Field to Market is a leading multi-stakeholder initiative working to unite the agriculture supply chain in defining, measuring and advancing the sustainability of food, fiber and fuel production in the United States.
As an active member in Field to Market, LifeLine Foods works together with grower organizations, academia, conservation groups, public sector partners and leading companies to help to catalyze opportunities for continuous improvement in productivity, environmental quality and human well-being across the agricultural value chain.
“Our progressive farmer owners have been motivated for years to improve productivity and environmental quality on their family farms. Our recent membership in Field to Market provides us with the opportunity to fully engage in the dialogue, showcase our farmer owner practices, and continue to evolve and improve our sustainability efforts” says Kevin Kelly.
Representing all facets of the U.S. agricultural supply chain, Field to Market provides an unparalleled platform that helps the food and agricultural supply chain benchmark sustainability performance, catalyze continuous improvement and enable supply chain sustainability claims.
