This Is Why We Love What We Do
“We are so grateful for the Noble Growth Network partnership. I would fully recommend Noble Growth Network to any food company that wants to stand for sustainable and regenerative growing practices and a valuable food source for their consumers.
We were so extremely fortunate to have met Sara Harper at Expo West last year and the lines of communication were opened to establish our Noble Growth Network/Bella Gluten-Free partnership. Our mission of radical traceability and of a responsible food supply to our consumers is one in the same. The very idea that we can link directly to farmers who are committed to the people and the planet is really just a dream come true for us.
One of the greatest benefits for us has been the initial business assessments Noble Growth Network has provided and the resource of each of the Noble Growth Network diverse team members. With the help of a CFO, we gained insight into and reestablished our strategic financial goals. With the the expertise of the Noble Growth Network Director of Marketing we have been working on our engagement and marketing strategy. These skill sets and resources for any company is a huge value add. And to know that we are joined in an effort that supports our mission is what really matters overall.
This partnership not only differentiates our brand but it truly allows us to continue to provide a valued food source for our consumers.”

“So often, we farmers have no connection with the people that decide how our crops are turned into food – or with the end consumer who is now so interested in farming. The chance to become more than just a commodity – but a partner with food companies that share a similar culture and reverence for regenerative principles, is extremely valuable.”

“I’m interested in both organic and regenerative ingredients in my products. Part of our mission for Around the World Gourmet is to provide consumers with a product that’s healthier for you and our planet. This peer group is a great way to be connected directly to farmers who are practicing regenerative agriculture and to share with them what consumers are demanding.”

“Having worked with both farmers and food companies over the past 20 years, I saw so many ways that these two groups could help each other – and give the consumer what they so clearly want, if only they had a way to work together. Noble Growth Network provides that opportunity.”

“Third-party assessment of sustainability standards increases transparency in a credible way. The program that Noble Growth Network is building will directly connect sustainability data and information across the value chain.
As a firm dedicated to helping farmers and food companies grow and sustain their businesses, we are excited to be a part of the sustainable food solution Noble Growth is leading in the food and ag industry.”

“As we watch marketplace trends unfold, we know that leading edge food influencers are turning their sights on farms and farming practices. Over the next several years, the focus of criticism will be on pesticide use, fertilizers and soil health. Regenerative farming provides a way to reduce dependence on outside inputs over time. We predict regenerative farming will become more popular in the coming years.”
