Food Policy

Glover Park Group is handling agricultural and environmental issues for the Sustainable Food Policy Alliance.

Unilever US, Nestle USA, Danone North America and Mars Inc. launched the SFPA in 2018.

The goal is to impact US policy on issues related to food safety, nutrition, climate change/renewable energy/resilient communities and consumer transparency related to information about the food that people buy.

In April, the SFPA urged US decision-makers to establish a carbon pricing system aligned with climate science and to accelerate clean energy deployment as part of the strategies to reduce and sequester greenhouse gases. It noted that "scalable, lasting solutions to climate change require government leadership.”

GPG's SFPA team includes Joel Leftwich, who was majority staff director on the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; and Grant Leslie, aide to former Sen. Tom Daschle and ex-Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
