July’s Focus On Farming from A Greener World
July 2018
Make the most of your certification!
Back in March, a report from leading food and beverage market researcher, the Hartman Group, revealed the Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW label has the highest impact on consumer purchasing behavior of any food certification label.

We’ve just had even more positive news: Compassion in World Farming (CIWF), a global farm animal welfare nonprofit, recently compared 34 higher welfare certifications across 10 countries. The Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW label was the only program that met all of CIWF’s higher animal welfare criteria for laying hens!

With such great news, it’s more important than ever to make sure you’re displaying your AGW logos on all your products and websites for consumers to see. We offer a range of marketing support for certified farms and ranches, and anyone selling certified products, with extensive experience in marketing, PR, communications and best positioning AGW-certified products in a competitive marketplace. From simple talking points to help you explain what certification means, to a complete professional label overhaul, we’re here to help!

To get you started, you’ll find a Branding Guide and downloadable logos on our new website, as well as branded merchandise at affordable prices–including aprons, banners, hats, water bottles, signs, mouse pads and even bandanas. Shout it loud and proud!

Get social
An online presence is now a necessity for most farming and food businesses. But it’s more than just having a website. Social media is a vital part of any communications and marketing strategy—particularly if you’re selling directly to the consumer. In the latest issue of Sustainable Farming, Stephanie Vanlochem discusses the key do’s and don’ts for social media success. Read “Get Social” on pp. 12-13. If you haven’t already, find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and join the conversation!
