Shuman Farms Shares Latest Investments in Sustainability and Healthy Family Project®
REIDSVILLE, GA - Sustainability is at the forefront of every industry conversation, and Shuman Farms is leading the conversation. Recent investments have come to the forefront as the grower puts a spotlight on its sustainability initiatives.
Here’s What’s in Store.
At Shuman Farms, we understand the importance of sustainability and the role it plays in our people, our farms, our products, our community, and the planet itself. We commit to creating full transparency in all of the processes we follow to bring our products to market.
For example, our farms utilize sustainable practices focused on conservation, with water conservation, soil erosion, and responsible pest and disease control top of mind.
We continue to investigate alternatives to plastic, while also striving to reduce the amount of plastic material used in all of our consumer bags. Shuman Farms has worked with our suppliers to adjust our packaging to utilize a third less plastic than the previous design.
Approximately 60 percent of our products sold each year are shipped in cardboard boxes that are 100 percent recyclable.
Furthermore, it is our goal to educate consumers about the important part produce plays in creating a healthy lifestyle. Our Healthy Family Project® team works every day to inspire and support families, because introducing the next generation of shoppers to produce is sustainability in action.
