The Red Seaweed Promise™ and Cargill’s Stevia Sustainability Agricultural Standard are among Cargill’s global sustainability programs to help ensure a long-term sustainable supply chain.
Red Seaweed Promise program
To help ensure a long-term sustainable red seaweed supply chain, Cargill has launched the Red Seaweed Promise.™ The program is specifically designed to address key sustainability challenges for the harvesting and cultivation of red seaweed, while enhancing producer livelihoods, supporting local communities, and conserving the marine environment. The program responds to the food industry and consumers’ needs for more sustainable food ingredients, with a commitment to source 60 percent sustainable red seaweed by 2025.
Cargill’s Stevia Sustainability Program has been benchmarked at Silver Level against the Farm Sustainability Assessment 3.0. In this way, Cargill is the first stevia producer to have its entire grower network achieve this distinction. Stevia Sustainability Agricultural Standard protects both the farmers and the land where our stevia plants are grown. And, on top of that, we use innovative approaches that drive sustainability.
