The Food Trade Sustainability Leadership Association (FTSLA) is a non-profit trade association dedicated to helping the organic food trade transition to more sustainable practices and raise the bar across the food industry. Our world, and our industry, face pressing environmental, social and economic challenges and consumer demand is growing for more responsible, sustainable products. Organic businesses are rooted in values that uniquely position us to be leaders in this area. Yet we must continue to build knowledge and skills, and collaborate, to do this effectively. FTSLA was founded to meet these needs. Our members include organic producers, processors, manufacturers, distributors and retailers across North America. We help members improve performance, communicate results and drive wider change through networking, education, consult and shared metrics. Our "Declaration of Sustainability in the Food Trade" provides a common framework for benchmarking performance and progress. We invite you to learn more about our mission, membership program and accomplishments, and join us in growing a more sustainable food system!
