By training our senses to understand and appreciate the pleasures of food, we open our eyes to the world.

GOOD - tasty, fresh, seasonal and capable of stimulating and satisfying the senses.

CLEAN - produced without straining the earth's resources, its ecosystems and its environments - and without harming human health.

FAIR - respectful of social justice, meaning fair pay and conditions for everyone concerned in the supply chain - from production to commercialization to consumption.
