is aligning food with the fight against climate change.

About Planet FWD

Planet Forward is a platform-driven food company with a mission to use food to help reverse climate change -- starting with a line of addictive (and healthy) snack food products and a platform to track regenerative grower supply data. By connecting food producers to growers, Planet Forward will become a B2B resource for any company to source regeneratively-produced ingredients and reduce their carbon impact.

Why Now

One third of the world’s topsoil has been acutely degraded by industrial farming. Regenerative agriculture restores soil through techniques that were practiced for centuries, and that don’t make food more expensive -- reason enough for Whole Foods to name it the next decade’s #1 food trend. With a push towards net zero carbon emissions, more and more brands are looking for tools to help them assess and improve their carbon position.
