ASAP Connections

Local Food. Strong Farms. Healthy Communities

Are labor and environmental standards covered in the certification?


No, but that’s why ASAP believes transparency in the food system is so important. Supporting local agriculture is a powerful way to shape the food system and support the environmental and labor standards you want to see. Localizing agriculture connects farmers and community members; you are in direct contact with the farmers that grow your food or only one or two steps removed. Through this close connection, you can make informed choices about the food you eat and in turn foster greater economic, social, and environmental health. We encourage you to get to know the farmers that grow your food and ask them directly about production and business practices.
