SAN FRANCISCO, CA - GrubMarket is one company that continues to make headlines here at ANUK due to its ambitious strategies to achieve growth in the produce arena. In its latest move, the company has made an effort to promote and enhance agricultural sustainability in California through its Sustainable California initiative.

Mike Xu, Chief Executive Officer, GrubMarket"California farmers, especially farmers in the Central Valley, are challenged every day as farming becomes harder and harder, due to an increasingly hot climate, depleted water supply, and deteriorating soil conditions from over-farming. The farm-grown produce available today in California's local farmers' markets are much less in richness, variety, and diversity, compared to several years ago. Moreover, the past few years have seen economic uncertainty and supply chain disruptions that have presented a unique opportunity for long-term innovation in food production and environmental protection. We are excited to launch the Sustainable California initiative to protect, support, and uplift California's fragile agricultural ecosystem," said Mike Xu, Chief Executive Officer. "It can be easy to take food for granted, yet sustainable food production is one of our society's most critical needs. The Sustainable California initiative is not only our way of giving back to the local agricultural community, but also reflects our commitment to supporting sustainable agriculture, protecting the environment, and ensuring that future generations can continue to benefit from the bountiful resources of California."

According to a press release, the Sustainable California initiative will address the numerous challenges currently facing California's agriculture industry, including water scarcity, soil depletion, environmental preservation challenges, and climate change.

The company plans to achieve this by making meaningful investments in the following endeavors:

  • Preserving the farming environment of the Central Valley and other areas of California through methods such as planting trees
  • Promoting organic farming practices by financially supporting local farmers to obtain organic certifications
  • Developing innovative technologies that improve the sustainability of California's farming system in areas including farming and food procurement, sales, storage, and logistics

Through this initiative, GrubMarket will contribute to the reforestation in California, helping to reduce its collective carbon footprint, mitigate the effects of climate change, and retain its underground water system which is essential for farming. GrubMarket will also provide funding and resources to farmers seeking organic certification in California.
