“You have been able to put dogs and cats in a closed bag. Everybody got out alive and, more amazing, respecting each other's different points of view and agreeing that we could achieve something together.”

Membership is open to companies and organizations with one or more individuals committed to the goals and process of SFL, and who have support from senior management to pursue these goals, attend meetings, and share learning from projects. All members contribute time and money to the work of SFL.
As an SFL member you will be joining a potent and unique collaborative environment that connects with people, projects, and ideas you need for success in global markets increasingly focused on sustainability.
Benefits Include:
    • An option to allocate half of your membership fee to a collaborative project that serves your needs. Some Food Lab projects are confidential, some involve peer learning from people in other organizations, and others are quite public and designed to address common challenges such as measuring social impacts of supply chains and stimulating rapid sustainability imporvment across the U.S. beef industry.
