Food Alliance Certification supports the environment, social justice & humane treatment of animals

With little regard for animal suffering, the environment, or fair labor practices, our conventional food system has been based on the premise that food is a commodity that should be cheap and plentiful--the costs, even to our health, are downplayed.  Scott Exo, executive director of the Food Alliance tells how his organization is working to create an alliance around trust in our relationship to food.  Food Alliance Certification supports fair working conditions, humane treatment of animals, and good environmental stewardship.  Based in Portland, the Food Alliance is a nonprofit organization that certifies farms, ranches and food handlers throughout North America for sustainable agricultural and facility management practices  Hosted by Stephanie Potter.
