Social Justice Labeling from Farm to Retail

“Eating is an agricultural act.”
- Wendell Berry

Food Justice Certified is a label based on high-bar social justice standards for farms, processors, and retailers, including every link in the food chain from farm to table. Our approach is holistic; we ensure fair treatment of workers, fair pricing for farmers, and fair business practices. Food Justice Certified is designed for all agricultural production systems, fiber and cosmetics as well as food.

Stakeholder Driven Labeling: Our Partners
The Food Justice Certified label and certification program were developed by the Agricultural Justice Project, a social justice standards setting initiative. The AJP is a partnership of four non-profit organizations: The Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI-USA), The Farmworker Support Committee (CATA), Florida Organic Growers (FOG), and the Northeastern Organic Farming Association (NOFA).

The label is governed by three collaborative committees made up of representatives from different food system stakeholder groups:
