Joel Feigenheimer has managed operations at RealEats.org since he founded the sustainable foods website in 2009. While working for his PhD at Northcentral University, Joel Feigenheimer wrote his dissertation on consumers’ views of genetically modified foods.
RealEats.org provides restaurant owners with a variety of sustainable resources, including contact information for numerous seafood distributors and suppliers that are committed to sustainable food processes.
Finding a trusted distributor of local, quality seafood can be a time-consuming and expensive process, particularly when matters of sustainability are considered. Producers of sustainable foods must adhere to approved practices for ordering, tracking, handling, storing, and delivering food.
RealEats.org has established a network of reliable seafood vendors that follow sustainable catching and raising regulations or adhere to guidelines made by organizations such as the Marine Stewardship Council, a nonprofit that sets standards for sustainable fishing.
