Elevated Foods Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities

Elevated Foods,
U.S. Department of Agriculture


This project will implement climate-smart production practices, activities, and systems on a large scale across cropland planted to fruits and vegetables, with a particular focus on fresh fruit and vegetable crops. Partners propose to implement practices on hundreds of thousands of acres planted to fruit and vegetables in key growing regions across the United States, and extend the producer reach to urban farmers in Orange County, California, and the Navajo Nation, to meet the needs of small and underserved producers.

Elevated plans to leverage its marketing and branding expertise to pilot a climate-smart branding program for participating producers reach customers in multiple sectors from farmer’s markets to global retailers. Materials planned include branded stickers, bags and boxes, and social media promotion.
