Soquel, Calif.-based consulting firm SureHarvest has been working with numerous produce groups on sustainability issues. The group just finished its first sustainability program report on the Modesto, Calif.-based Almond Board.
The report didn’t address the no-waste issue, but it is certain to come up as the program develops, said Joe Browde, senior research associate.
“They will develop as we develop self-assessment side for the growers,” he said. “The waste side would be an excellent fit for development, especially for the processors.”
