We’ve had a lot of firsts this week, and we’re happy to add Loffredo Fresh as the most recent Green Plus Certified business, and the first Certified business based in the state of Iowa!
Like many of our recently Certified businesses, Loffredo Fresh Produce came to Green Plus through PRO*ACT USA, a national membership organization of food distributors from around the country. It is now the sixth PRO*ACT member and the fifth business in just two weeks to earn Green Plus Certification.
“The Green Plus certification shows our team, our customers, and our communities that sustainability is a priority at Loffredo Fresh Produce,” says Mark Zimmerman, the Chief Financial Officer for Loffredo Fresh Produce. “It gives us a tool to evaluate our commitment to our People, or Planet, and our Performance.”
Loffredo Fresh Produce operates in four states — Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin — and works with customers in even more, opening up the opportunity for Green Plus and its members to reach and influence even more small businesses.
Congratulations to Loffredo Fresh Produce, and welcome to the Green Plus Certified family!
