Dr. Bronner’s commitment to improving our global food system runs deep.
In 2016, the mission-driven organization has donated more than half a million dollars toward farm animal protection efforts and organizations that are working to make our food system more sustainable and humane.
It was because of Dr. Bronner’s partnership and grant support that The Good Food Institute was able to grow from concept to reality, and we’re honored to be associated with such a powerful force for good.
“It’s incredible how smart Dr. Bronner’s is with its advocacy work,” explains GFI executive director Bruce Friedrich. “Their team is attacking the myriad problems of our broken system holistically, and we treasure their moral and strategic partnership. Dr. Bronner’s gave The Good Food Institute the philanthropic support we needed out of the gate, while we were still proving concept and before we’d even officially launched the organization. As a brand-new nonprofit, this gave us the momentum and the confidence we needed to accelerate.”
In addition to the partnership with GFI, Dr. Bronner’s also supported the founding of the Plant Based Foods Association which works to ensure a competitive marketplace for businesses selling plant-based replacements for animal products. Some of the founding companies of the PBFA include Tofurky, Miyoko’s Kitchen, and Follow Your Heart. GFI is proud to be an affiliate member of the PBFA.
By supporting work across the plant-based movement, Dr. Bronner’s is effectively bridging efforts to improve animal welfare with efforts to protect the environment.
David Bronner, Cosmic Engagement Officer (CEO) of Dr. Bronner’s, explains: "As a dedicated vegan, I’m proud that my family is committing resources over the long-term to take on the terrible plight of farm animals and to promote more compassionate and sustainable dietary choices."
Luckily, the plant-based foods that are best for the environment are also those that benefit the welfare of farm animals by reducing our reliance on inhumane and outdated factory farming systems.
By supporting the success of a sustainable food system, Dr. Bronner’s is poised to do a tremendous amount of good for the planet with its generosity.
As the slogan goes, “In all we do, let us be generous, fair & loving to Spaceship Earth and all its inhabitants. For we’re All-One or None!”
From the entire team at The Good Food Institute, thank you Dr. Bronner’s for your incredible partnership and your philanthropic support of our mission!
