The Power of Transparency: How Harvesting Good Ensures a Traceable Supply Chain

At Harvesting Good, our values stem from food banking. Knowing where your food comes from and how it’s produced should be a given, not a privilege. Transparency is at the heart of what we do, and we want to take you behind the scenes to show you how we ensure a traceable supply chain. It’s our way of building trust and ensuring that every bite you take is delicious, safe, and sustainably sourced.

What is food traceability, and why does it matter?

Food traceability is all about tracking your food’s journey from the field to your table. It’s about understanding each step of the harvesting, processing, packaging, and transportation so you can feel confident about what you’re eating. At Harvesting Good, we’ve made it our mission to implement traceability systems that allow us to monitor every production phase.

Our commitment to sustainable sourcing.

Sustainable sourcing is more than a buzzword for us; it’s a commitment we live by. We source broccoli florets locally from the Crown of Maine (Aroostook County), distributing them throughout New England and New York. This local approach not only supports our communities but also lowers our production’s carbon footprint. By choosing local, we minimize the environmental impact compared to sourcing produce from far-off places like the West Coast or even other countries.

The benefits of a transparent supply chain:

  • Building Trust: We know trust is earned. We aim to earn your trust by being transparent about our supply chain and how our veggies make it to your table. When you buy Harvesting Good products, you can feel good knowing exactly where your broccoli comes from and how it’s processed.
  • Reducing Environmental Impacts: Transparency helps us stay accountable to our sustainability goals. It ensures we’re always working towards reducing waste, using resources efficiently, and protecting our local ecosystems.
  • Supporting Local Farmers: By sourcing locally, we directly support food system suppliers in the Northeast. This helps them support their local economies and promotes sustainable farming practices that benefit everyone.

Why transparency matters to us – and to you!
