The ProTerra Foundation

The ProTerra Foundation

Our Approach

The ProTerra Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that advances and promotes sustainability at all levels of the feed and food production system.
Commitment to full transparency and traceability throughout the supply chain and concern for corporate social responsibility and the possible detrimental impact of agricultural activities on ecosystems and biodiversity are at the heart of everything we do.

Independent third-party assessments are central to the ProTerra Foundation which brings together stakeholders from all levels of the supply chain. ProTerra certification and verification ensure that high-quality supplies of raw materials, food, and feed, that are independently audited and produced with improved sustainability, are available in the market.


ProTerra Vision and Mission

The ProTerra Foundation’s mission is to be a global network of businesses supporting more sustainable agricultural practices, in the food and feed supply chains, with full respect of workers and communities’ rights and, where relevant, the conversion to non-GMO. We envisage a world where all businesses contribute to the protection of biodiversity by switching to sustainable production, conserve natural resources and ensure that local communities are treated with dignity and respect.
Business enterprises which support the ProTerra Foundation mission and vision may sign a membership declaration to commit to:

  • Support the credibility of the ProTerra Standards and their adaptability to the reality they operate in.
  • Raise awareness about the impact on biodiversity and climate change.
  • Empower farms and businesses throughout the food supply chain, to become vectors of environmentally and socially responsible business practices.
