We work with food & hospitality businesses looking to transition to a more responsible food supply chain. We believe adopting responsible sourcing policies will lead to increased business value for our clients.
While every client engagement is unique, most involve three phases: planning, implementation, and support.
We conduct comprehensive surveys and in-person farm visits to assess what solutions are available for our client’s unique situation.
We help clients develop actionable policy language.
Based on our assessment and client’s needs, we build a timeline for implementation of animal welfare goals.
Depending on the situation, we either work with our client’s existing supplier to help them meet welfare requirements, or use our proprietary network to help our clients find a new supplier.
We develop innovative, localized solutions to help our clients fulfill their animal welfare goals.
We help ensure procurement strategies succeed by helping management engage both internal and external stakeholders.
We develop strategies for risk mitigation to minimize exposure and vulnerability, and to ensure long-term risk resilience in our client's supply chain.
We stay informed on current and emerging procurement topics in individual markets and update our clients on important news, requirements, and opportunities in their area.
We help our clients communicate and report their commitments and progress, and narrate their impact story to key stakeholders.
We provide technical guidance to suppliers to transition and implement high welfare production practices, and to create competitive advantages, including on third-party certification, traceability systems, and facilitating market access.
Our team has extensive corporate and on-farm experience developing and executing animal welfare policies and production practices. After spending a combined 30 years in the food supply chain and responsible animal sourcing industries, our founding team experienced firsthand the challenges businesses face in implementing and maintaining responsible procurement policies.
They founded Global Food Partners to help businesses navigate this complex supply chain, meet their responsible sourcing commitments, and improve both profitability and sustainability.
We understand the industry in a way other firms can’t. We’ve dedicated our entire careers to this field, and bring those years of context and experience to each client engagement.
Not only do we know the industry, we know the people. Our extensive relationships with suppliers, advocacy groups, and regulatory agencies helps us deliver fast, cost-effective implementations for our clients.
Our clients pay for our work, not our overhead. We build each team around our client’s unique needs, ensuring that every dollar billed directly results in value for our clients.
We customize our project scope to fit the precise needs of each client. As a privately-held firm, we’re unburdened by red tape, meaning we have more freedom to explore innovative solutions for our clients and implement those solutions quickly.
Working with Global Food Partners means you’re collaborating directly with our experienced founding team. We purposefully adopt a niche, low-volume approach so we can guarantee the highest quality care for our clients.
