Sustainability, Social & Environmental Impact
Our commitments, actions, and innovations for people and the planet
At Pure Ground Ingredients, we like to think of ourselves as the bridge between farmers and our customers – and our most important role is being a friend to both. We strive to act in a conscious manner that yields a positive impact – to the environment, grower communities, as well as our own.
We envision a world in which farmers, manufacturers and consumers come together in the name of a healthier planet and thriving communities.
Our ingredients are more than they seem. They are the sum of all the relationships, creativity, labor and life that made them possible. We carefully select our suppliers, auditing and inspecting to ensure each is meeting standards for quality, food safety, organic compliance, positive environmental impact and ethical working conditions. We have been working for over 25 years to develop our supply chain and offer a wide range of sustainably sourced materials.
Our Sustainably Sourced offering includes ingredients that fall into three tiers:
Globally Standardized Certifications
Ingredients from Regenerative Farms or Agroforestry Projects or those with technical processing upgrades to reduce toxins, increase energy efficiency and decrease negative environmental impacts.
Ingredients that come from sources which improve social equality, education, living wages, women's empowerment and general livelihood.
Our commitment to United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals
We are proud to have aligned with the UN's integral approach and call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
We know we can all work together to create a happier, healthier world.
