At Sustainable Grain, we help farmers, processors, food companies, and other stakeholders optimize their investment in the rapidly expanding markets for regenerative / organic food crop value chains. We assist with industry expertise, research, analysis, resource networking and professional advice to grow new business.
We all know that farming and food systems have played a role in climate change — but they can be the solution, too. Reshaping and modernizing food production, financial models, and distribution systems offers the potential for regenerative and organic agriculture to become a powerful positive influence on the natural environment. The goal of Sustainable Grain is to support innovative solutions to this end. We are pleased to launch the inaugural Canadian Summit on Climate Action in Food Systems, where farmers, food companies, and agronomy experts will gather in Kelowna, BC to support advancement in regenerative organic agriculture.
Sustainable Grain has created educational videos outlining the macro and microeconomic considerations for modern, consumer and nature-guided farms. These lectures offer a financial overview of what’s involved in changing from monocrop, yield-motivated farming towards intercropping, soil-building and fully regenerative organic food grain production.
