Our Mission

FoodMed Certified’s mission

Our mission is to promote the use of food as medicine in the prevention and intervention of illness by validating proven solutions that enable people to better manage their health through tools and nutritious food programs.
We are committed to helping companies and people make informed decisions by providing them with the necessary information about the effectiveness of programs that aid in preventing, treating, and managing diseases and building food security. By relieving companies of the burden of creating such programs themselves and promoting transparency, we strive to instill more confidence in decision-making, leading to better health outcomes for all.
