About Us

Consumers have questions about food – where it comes from, who’s producing it and how. Their healthy curiosity and skepticism is why we exist.

It’s not about supporting a certain outcome. We don’t lobby or advocate on behalf of any brand or company or food production method. We simply want to make sure that – in an environment where consumers are bombarded with contradictions – they have the balanced information they need about food to make informed choices that are right for them and their families.

Our Mission

To help today’s food system build trust.

Our Vision

CFI envisions a transparent, sustainable food system in which practices align with consumer expectations and the public discussion is well-informed and balanced.

We’re a not-for-profit organization whose members and project partners represent the diversity of today’s food system – from farmers, ranchers and food companies to universities, non-governmental organizations, restaurants, retailers and food processors.
