FMI – The Food Industry Association supports the launch of a new alliance representing farmers, forest owners, the food sector, state governments and environmental advocates called the Food and Agriculture Climate Alliance (FACA).
This alliance recognizes the important role the entire food supply chain plays in climate solutions, and therefore, these partners have joined forces to develop and promote shared climate policy priorities. Together, they will present Congress with more than 40 recommendations pertaining to agricultural and forestry climate policy.
The supply chain needs consumers to engage on these challenges to help reinforce larger climate goals. Food waste education is key to encouraging consumers – and young people in particular – to focus on ways they can be successful agents of change in the broader climate change discussion. Consistent with this thinking, the consumer-facing recommendations enhance and support the larger sustainability goals of the entire group.

As the food industry association, FMI works with and on behalf of the entire industry to advance a safer, healthier and more efficient consumer food supply chain. FMI brings together a wide range of members across the value chain — from retailers that sell to consumers, to producers that supply food and other products, as well as the wide variety of companies providing critical services — to amplify the collective work of the industry.
