Sustainable Food Brands You Should Try

Modern consumers care more and more about the environment and their impact on the planet. This includes choosing sustainable and ethical food brands that also do their bit for the environment. We supply a wide selection of brands that care as much about their sustainability practices as they do about their delicious products.

Dr Matt Johnson, professor at Hult International Business School, shared with Insider, “There is accumulating evidence that consumers are impacted by the perceived sustainability of [a] brand, and further, that consumers are willing to pay a premium for products from a sustainable brand over a non-sustainable competitor brand.”

What are sustainable food brands?

From sourcing fair trade ingredients to recycled packaging, sustainable brands are going green in many ways. If you are searching for sustainable and environmentally-friendly food brands, here are a few things to look out for.

1. Fairtrade ingredients and eco-friendly farming.

Is the company sourcing fair trade ingredients? Are the workers being paid fairly? Do they use eco-friendly farming methods? More and more companies are opting for ethically-sourced ingredients that are handled by workers who are being paid fairly at a living wage.

2. Offsetting carbon footprint.

Is the company considering their carbon footprint when manufacturing products? As Carbon Footprint explains, “Carbon offsetting projects help to combat global climate change as well as caring for local communities. In many instances providing much needed employment, health improvement, biodiversity, reforestation and broad social benefits to impoverished communities.”

3. Recyclable packaging.

Packaging is mostly an unavoidable part of protecting and preserving products. Eco-friendly packaging gives consumers the ability to reuse or recycle packaging, reducing landfill waste and encouraging consumers to be more mindful of the waste they produce.
