Building brands and products that are good for people and our planet. 

Nutrition & Sustainability Strategy For Mission-Driven Business

We know what a difference maker sustainably produced, nourishing food can be.  The global pandemic has brought into laser focus for consumers the importance of diet in maintaining healthy mind and body.  In late 2020, 77% of survey responders declared 'health and wellbeing' as a major driver of their food purchases. 


Sustainably produced food is also crucial in our fight against climate change, deemed the "defining issue off our time." 

Mission-driven brands can be leaders in bringing products to the world that sustain better health, while conserving vital land, energy and water resources while being good to those who produce them.   

We are inspired to help you be part of the solution. 

Strategic Nutrition Design provides services that incorporate best practices customized for your business. These strategies are sustainable, scalable and differentiating so that you can achieve business success...all while doing right by people and our planet.
