Can we cure the blindness in global supply chains?
Food moves across the globe through supply chains that are mostly blind. Purchasers often have scant visibility into who grows our food, the practices they use, or the communities they support.
To deliver the benefits of a more agrobiodiverse food system, we must gain and retain the trust of all those involved in the cultivation, distribution, processing, marketing and consumption of food. Developing frameworks that support greater traceability and transparency in supply chains can help companies meet their agrobiodiversity objectives, allow consumers to better align their food purchases with their values, reward farmers who adopt more diverse, regenerative farming practices, and offer profoundly positive environmental impacts.
To support greater transparency in our food systems, the FACT Roundtable has developed 10 Principles for Agrobiodiversity, then tested them by conducting tests with three grains on three continents: small millets in India; amaranth in Mexico; and fonio in West Africa.
The FACT Supply Chain Tool can provide food companies both big and small with a purchasing framework to accelerate the adoption of market-driven support to enhance agrobiodiversity across our food systems.
If you are a food company and would like to develop your own transparency tool for sourcing ingredients that support agrobiodiversity, or if you have additional questions on how the tool was built, please fill out the form below.
