Food Alliance is a non-profit organization that creates market incentives for adoption of sustainable agricultural practices and educates business leaders and other food system stakeholders on the benefits of sustainable agriculture. Food Alliance works at the juncture of science, business and values to define and promote sustainability in agriculture and the food industry, and to ensure safe and fair working conditions, humane treatment of animals, and careful stewardship of ecosystems.

Food Alliance received a WRI Basin Wide Impact grant to work with the Oregon Association of Nurseries to develop a certification system to track and promote sustainable nursery practices in the Willamette Valley.
