Ardent Mills joins sustainable agriculture initiative

February 29, 2016

Ardent Mills has joined Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture as an associate member. As a leading multi-stakeholder initiative, Field to Market is working to unite the agricultural supply chain in defining, measuring, and advancing sustainability in U.S. food, fiber, and fuel production.

“We are excited to join Field to Market. We have been working to build out our Ardent Mills Sustainability Strategy, and the Field to Market program will fit nicely into our Agriculture pillar,” said Shrene White, director of specialty grains with Ardent Mills. “We work with great growers who pride themselves on being stewards of the land and they have great stories to tell. The Fieldprint Calculator is a good method to help our growers measure continuous improvement. We will use this tool to help share their stories with our flour customers and consumers.”

Working together with grower organizations, academia, conservation groups, public sector partners, and leading companies engaged in the Alliance, Ardent Mills will help to catalyze opportunities for continuous improvement in productivity, environmental quality, and human well-being across the agricultural value chain.
