About the Food Front

Our Mission

The Food Front is an Economic Development initiative led by the City of Woodland in partnership with its 190+ food and ag businesses. Through this campaign, we are dedicated to keeping Woodland at the forefront of food and agriculture by cultivating existing relationships and warmly welcoming new ones. With the same humility and pride Woodland was built on, we will continue to serve as leaders for a responsible and innovative food future.


Every Woodland company’s contribution to our mission is unique and constantly evolves the definition of responsibility in food and ag. Industry partners in every facet of the food system push the limits of organic, sustainable, local, and healthy products. Woodlanders work together to continually improve how our food is grown, harvested, processed, and enjoyed. This sense of duty begins with a deep respect for the land and the people who work it and extends to the nutritional health our foods provide today and for future generations.


Here in Woodland, we recognize the important role our food and ag industry partners play in scaling food production. We take seriously our commitment to grow responsibly and invest in forward-thinking projects that will help the world adjust to the increasing demand for food and challenges to our climate and natural resources. This commitment also makes Woodland more economically and environmentally resilient.


As we strive for innovation, Woodland’s economy and community thrive. It’s a natural, symbiotic relationship that enriches where we live and what we do. Thoughtful agricultural practices spur job creation and job security, as well as our community’s pride in being a part of this necessary investment in our people and our planet. In fact, our diverse economy’s food and ag backbone helped Woodland weather the low points of the pandemic in reasonable condition.

Woodland’s food and ag industry has led the way for over 150 years. This rich tradition demonstrates that economic growth is not counter to responsible practices – both are foundational to improving how food is grown and made.
