Sustainably sourced ingredients are those ingredients whether agricultural produce are farmed with more than economic considerations in mind. Sustainable farmers concern about the environmental and social impact of their farming activities.A sustainable ingredient is produced and transported in a way that limits its contribution to global warming, which threatens our planet. Likewise, this ingredient must also protect biodiversity and ecosystems, which implies that it respects natural resources and the living world. Finally, an ingredient is only sustainable if it also ensures fair and sufficient compensation, as well as decent working conditions.
For example, indiscriminate farming methods may produce more crops over the short-term but create long-term repercussions like soil damage. Or they may burn entire forests to clear land or create fertile soil for the next season’s harvest, causing long-term damage to the environment around them.
