Loffredo Fresh Foods is constantly looking for ways to make measurable strides in our goal of creating a greener tomorrow.



Greener Fields Together is a sustainability program that is administered by Pro*Act. Our membership partners us with farmers, distributors, foodservice operators and retail locations to work toward safer produce, from seed to fork.

The Green Business Bureau exists to foster environmental awareness among businesses and promote business practices that are environmentally responsible. Our membership provides us with the resources required to become a more sustainable company within our community.


  • We recycle 5 million pounds of produce scraps each year
  • Produce scraps are diverted from landfills and donated to support our local farms and strengthen our community
  • 4-5 local farms receive our recycled produce scraps per week


  • Our employee garden is located near our Norwalk, Iowa, facility, and provides a wonderful opportunity for our staff to spend time outdoors, learn more about the produce we work with each day, harvest produce and bring it home to their families
  • Employees are encouraged to contribute ideas for crops and participate in managing its growth
  • Employees plant a variety of fruits and vegetables, including eggplant, carrots, zucchini, watermelon, pumpkin, sweet corn, chili peppers, bell peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, beans, jalapeno peppers and more
