Start your LEAF Marque certification

As sustainability continues to rise on the global agenda, many retailers and manufacturers are now requiring Fresh Produce growers to be LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) Marque certified. LEAF Marque certification can help you positively impact the environment, protect your reputation, and demonstrate to your buyers and end users your commitment to being a responsible countryside custodian.

Some of the key timelines you need to know:  

  • Tesco is implementing the LEAF Marque environmental assurance scheme across its entire global produce supply chain, to improve environmental standards across 14,000 growers globally. All UK growers must achieve LEAF Marque certification by the end of 2022, and the Tesco global supply chain to be completed by 2025. 
  • Lidl GB has requested its fruit and vegetable farmers achieve LEAF Marque certification by the end of 2023. 
  • PepsiCo has pledged that all 300+ of its UK-based Quaker Oats farmers should achieve LEAF Marque certification by the end of 2023. 

If you are a food supplier to any of these organizations, you need to move quickly to avoid disruptions in your business. It is likely that other organizations will follow.
