We are very pleased that our corporate commitment to the planet is a role model that others can look up to.

A core value at Standard Process Inc. is its commitment to the whole planet to use only environmentally safe farming practices. The company’s organic farming efforts recently earned the PR Daily Corporate Social Responsibility Award for best sustainability/green initiative from Ragan Communications. The award showcases best practices in corporate sustainability and rewards companies taking sustainability to new heights. Jet Blue received an honorable mention.

Especially proud of this accomplishment is Standard Process Engineering Manager Rick Goetz, “It is an honor for Standard Process to be recognized for our continued commitment and efforts toward sustainable business practices and the environment. We are very pleased that our corporate commitment to the planet is a role model that others can look up to.”

The award program is offered by Ragan’s PR Daily, a news site delivering public relations, marketing and social media advice for readers around the world.

Several thousand Standard Process customers travel each year to the company’s corporate headquarters in Palmyra, Wis., to witness first-hand the 85-year-old company’s level of commitment to organic farming. To show that all of its ingredients grown on the Standard Process Farm are 100 percent organic, Standard Process must demonstrate it follows the strict National Organic Program regulations from the United States Department of Agriculture to grow its crops. This means Standard Process maintains detailed farming practice records and follows quality control measures all the way back to the soil.

The Standard Process Farm team works with Goetz and his onsite engineering team, as well as the company’s research and development scientists, to determine the best plant varieties that will yield the highest nutrient content and to determine which new farming and processing technologies will help increase crop utilization and maximize crop yield per acre.
