10-Jul-2015

California Safe Soil is proud to announce that from numerous applicants and 10 finalists, we were presented with the Sustainability Award at the Forbes AgTech Summit event on July 9th, 2015 in Salinas, CA through the Thrive Accelerator Program. Through a zero waste, 3-hour process, California Safe Soil exemplifies sustainable practices that not only combat food waste, but also reduce nitrate runoff as well as water use. http://www.thriveaccelerator.com

We were honored to have Lorri Koster, CEO of Mann Packing, as our mentor throughout the Thrive Accelerator program. Her guidance and support have been critical to our success in this competition as well as helping to opening doors to business leaders in the Salinas agriculture community.

Working with our partner, Save Mart Supermarkets, and industry leaders like Mann Packing, California Safe Soil is committed to improving sustainable agriculture in the Salinas area as well as throughout California.

Silicon Valley Group partnered with Forbes and the Western Growers Association to host “Reinventing America: The AgTech Summit.” This event brought together "several hundred of the smartest and most innovative minds in the Silicon Valley and global agriculture in Salinas Valley”. We're honored to have been recognized by Forbes, the Silicon Valley Group and the Thrive Accelerator program in our efforts towards promoting sustainable agriculture. http://us9.campaign-archive2.com/?u=bf6ec629055b262caa6bda35a&id=dfce98e59c&e=8c9869fd1f
