The team here at Upstate Elevator got some great news this week! We’re excited to report that our company received an A, the highest grade possible, from the Center for Food Safety (CFS) on its March 2020 Hemp CBD Scorecard. The national nonprofit watchdog’s evaluation provides consumers with independent information about how CBD products are produced and processed, allowing them to make more informed decisions in the marketplace.
For twenty years, CFS has been at the forefront of organizing a powerful food movement that is fighting the industrial model and promoting organic, ecological, and sustainable alternatives.
We’re proud to be among a handful of companies leading the charge for sustainable, responsible business practices within the hemp industry, and grateful for the recognition. It’s especially exciting on the heels of our recent USDA organic certification for hemp processing.
