ReFed reports that consumer education is the most important solution to food waste itself. This Stop Food Waste Day, we encourage you to educate yourself on the food waste problem and how it’s affecting you and our Earth every day. We urge you to use these resources for facts, tips and solutions on how we can reduce and eliminate food waste.

 

A few easy ways for you to make a huge impact in your daily life are:

  • Always compost → food in landfills is one of the largest contributors to unnecessary methane)

  • Always take home leftovers → you can always eat them later, give them to a homeless person or compost them

Full Harvest: An Official CCOF Organic Broker

What exactly does Certified Organic mean? “Organic standards address many factors: soil quality, animal raising, pest and weed control, and use of input materials. Materials approved for and prohibited from organic production can be found on the National List.” Most people don’t know that Certified Organic also means that it is non-GMO.

 

Before CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers), the integrity of consumer products and produce had not been challenged. CCOF was founded in California over 40 years ago on the belief to advance organic agriculture for a healthier world. CCOF is supported by an organic family of farmers, ranchers, processors, retailers, consumers, and policymakers. This agency is recognized nationally and internationally.

 

Like CCOF, Full Harvest is dedicated to helping healthier products become the norm. While we sell both conventional and organic produce, our CCOF certification means that all of our organic produce is certified and that we are committed to the organic movement.

 

You can be further assured of our transparent, certified produce supply chain.

A Fresh New Look for 2018

San Francisco, CA: Full Harvest announces today our new company identity and brand refresh. The new branding reflects our company growth as well as our dedication to solving food waste.

“I am excited to have created a more mature and current look and feel. We have grown a lot since our early days, having now sold millions of pounds of produce that would have otherwise gone to waste. Now that we are working with major food and beverage companies, we wanted a logo that could become an industry mark and depicts our sustainability mission,” said founder Christine Moseley.

The new Full Harvest website reinforces our vision and illustrates our core values as a company. Users of our marketplace will see the new design aesthetic go into effect today and will continue to enjoy the ease of the platform.

Full Harvest selected Hungry Studio, headquartered in New York, to partner with on the relaunch journey. “We loved working with such a passionate design team with expertise in the food space to develop the brand vision of the company,” said Christine.

“We have big plans for the next few years and the brand relaunch is just the beginning of what’s to come. We continue to stay committed to solving farm food waste in a large, scalable way and creating a world with 100% full harvests.”

Our team is excited to begin 2018 with a fresh new look ahead.

We are Full Harvest.

Reduced Food Waste: #3 Way to Reverse Climate Change
Drawdown_0.jpg

The potential consequences of climate change can be a daunting and overwhelming. With all the doom and gloom being spread in the news today, it can be easy for one to lose hope.

A new book by Project Drawdown called “Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming” provides an optimistic, yet achievable path forward. Project Drawdown is a climate change mitigation project initiated by Paul Hawken and climate activist Amanda Joy Ravenhill.  They gathered a diverse group of over 65 researchers and 127 experts from around the world to identify, research, model, and rank the 100 most substantive solutions to reverse climate change. The solutions proposed are not simply hypothetical, they are based on proven real-world models and backed by years of research.

The projected results are surprising, to say the least. If the proposed ideas are implemented, they will eliminate a combined 1 trillion tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere by 2050. This will not only help us stay below the dangerous 2°C temperature increase the United Nations say we must stay below, but will also create new jobs and economic opportunities.

‘Reduced Food Waste’ was ranked the #3 most impactful solution in the fight against global warming, even over solar and beef consumption! And out of the top 20 largest climate impacts, 8 are food related. This data further reinforces how critical our work at Full Harvest is for our future on this planet.

The top 10 solutions, in order of greatest impact, are shown below:
