It is a Sysco goal to foster the success of differentiated agriculture products in order to help all participants in the supply chain, incorporating farmer ownership and control.
We plan to do this by following a series of initiatives that include:
Using environmentally-friendly pesticides only when necessary.
Buy Local, Sell Fresh
A local food system initiative supplying natural and organic food items.
Family-owned farms producing value-added products.
Business Coalition for More Sustainable Food
Ensuring sufficient productivity in the future.
Partnerships for Produce
Sysco is also working with the Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH). This group is focused on educating our kids on the importance of healthy diets.
