“A Better Way”

Our Grassfed Alliance initiative promotes grassfed meat and dairy products that meet Authentic Grassfed Principles. The Grassfed Alliance uses consumer research, trade promotion, market experimentation, and advocacy to advance the grassfed industry.

Our Focus Areas

    Market Research

    Grassfed Alliance recently embarked on a market research project to reveal what consumers, retail buyers, and others find most important when choosing grassfed and regenerative products.

    Trade Promotions

    After conducting extensive consumer research, we’re convinced that 100% grassfed beef tells the ultimate story: it’s delicious because of the people and practices behind it and it holds the potential to restore grasslands and help save the planet. Check out our Real Burger of Earth Day promotion, an annual opportunity for grassfed brands to band together and present a clear message for 100% grassfed beef that will cut through the noise. Our message?  Grassfed burgers are the most delicious burger you can eat, and they will save the planet too.

Why Grassfed?

Producing Authentic Grassfed meat and dairy requires a regenerative approach, in which animals maintain a 100% grass- or forage-based diet for their entire lives, every season of every year. Farmers and ranchers employ practices that ensure animal welfare, benefit the land, and support transparency. In partnership with the leading grassfed certifiers in the U.S., we developed ten Authentic Grassfed Principles to help buyers understand what practices are core to grassfed and to know what labels to look for. Our programming empowers producers with tools and training to capture more market share and work towards a future where authentic grassfed practices are the norm.
