New Resource Bank is sponsoring the cocktail reception at the North American edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit, happening January 22–23, 2014, in San Francisco.
The Sustainable Foods Summit is a series of international summits focusing on food industry issues including sustainability and marketing initiatives, ethical sourcing and biodiversity, sustainability metrics and sustainable ingredients. The summit aims to engage food industry players in questions such as: How do organic, fair trade and other ecolabels further sustainability? Will there ever be a single sustainability standard for food products? How can sustainability performance be measured?
San Francisco–based New Resource is a pioneering sustainability-focused bank that has helped many well-known companies in the sustainable food space take their business to the next level, including Cowgirl Creamery, Straus Family Creamery, Blue Bottle Coffee, Ritual Coffee, Hog Island Oysters and Andean Naturals. The bank’s vice president of commercial banking, Gary Groff, will be on hand at the reception to talk about his passion: how values-aligned financing helps sustainable companies grow while staying true to their mission.
“We’re very excited to participate in the summit and sponsor the cocktail reception,” which takes place at 6:30 p.m. on the first day of the summit, says Gary Groff. “New Resource is 100 percent focused on sustainability, and we love to talk with companies about how they can grow while preserving their mission. I’m looking forward to sharing how we’ve worked with clients in the sustainable foods space to get the right financing.”
