Our food choices have significant impacts on the environment, animal welfare, the people who work in the food system, and the health and well-being of communities. Many consumers care about these impacts and want to make food choices that better reflect their values. At the same time, food producers want to earn the business of values-driven consumers.
Choose Food was based on a set of Core Ethical Commitments (CECs) that provide a framework for ethical decision-making. The CECs can help consumers think through and prioritize their values, and guide them in choosing foods that are aligned with those values. The CECs can also help guide producers in enhancing the ethics of their practices and products.
