Measuring Sustainability throughout the crop supply chain is gaining more press than ever, and at the forefront of the movement is the Stewardship Index For Specialty Crops. PMA (Produce Marketing Association), the leader in global trade and produce marketing, featured the Stewardship Index in their recent newsletter dated January 6, 2009.
The article titled "Group Seeks to Measure Sustainability Performance for Specialty Crops" PMA identifies the group and addressed their project which is currently seeking private and public interest. If you would like to read the article it can be found on the PMA website.
JVF Consulting, the leading bay area web design company, has been behind the scenes ensuring the launch of the new Stewardship Index website went flawlessly. Now the power of sustainability will enable operators at any point along the supply chain to benchmark, compare, and communicate their own performance. With this technology the Stewardship Index can address the unique needs of the specialty crop industry while improving environmental and social impacts.
