UNFI congratulates the ten recipients of the 2014 Future Organic Farmer Grants, each of whom were selected in part for their commitment to leading a lifelong career in organic agriculture.
The UNFI Foundation and the CCOF Foundation, along with other industry leaders are supporting new farmers by establishing the Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund, a first-of-its-kind collaboration.
In 2013, the UNFI Foundation granted $340,000 to support sustainable agriculture, organic farming and healthy eating.
UNFI has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all of the equity interests of Trudeau Foods, LLC. Trudeau Foods is the largest Minnesota-based distributor of natural, organic and specialty food products.
The Orange County Partnership and UNFI are pleased to host the groundbreaking of the company’s new 525,000 square foot distribution facility at the Crossroads Distribution Center on 525 Neelytown Road.
