NGFA joins sustainable agriculture initiative

Field to Market initiative works to advance the sustainability of food, feed, fiber and fuel production.

The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) has joined Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, a multi-sector initiative working to harness the collective action of the agricultural value chain to support resilient ecosystems and enhance farmer livelihoods.

Field to Market brings together a diverse group of grower organizations, agribusinesses, food, feed, restaurant and retail companies, conservation groups, universities and public sector partners to focus on defining, measuring and advancing the sustainability of food, feed, fiber and fuel production.

The initiative is comprised of over 170 members representing all facets of the U.S. agricultural supply chain, with members employing more than five million people and representing combined revenues totaling over $1.5 trillion.

“NGFA member companies are prioritizing sustainability and measurable environmental improvement in their long- and short-term goals, strategic plans and business models,” said Mike Seyfert, NGFA president and CEO. “NGFA looks forward to engaging with stakeholders across the agricultural value chain in the Field to Market alliance and to finding opportunities to support the efficiency and productivity of sustainability programs as our member companies work to transform America’s harvest into food, fuel and fiber.”

NGFA’s Climate Change and Sustainability Task Force, formed in 2021 to develop policy recommendations and educational strategies around sustainability resources, has endorsed NGFA’s membership in the Field to Market initiative.

“NGFA’s mission aligns closely with that of Field to Market and we look forward to the collaborations that will drive continuous improvement in the sustainability of commodity crop production," said Scott Herndon, president of Field to Market.
