Presentation Title: Compost in Retail Markets – How does SB1383 Procurement affect the Retail Customer, Backyard Gardener and Landscape Professional

Presentation Summary: For nearly 100 years, Kellogg Garden Products has been navigating the shifting landscape of organics retail, from shifting players in the composting industry, to regulation and policy upheavals. What began as a supplier of organic fertilizers for the citrus groves in Orange County has become a trusted source for organic home gardeners, and a supporter of the circular, regenerative food systems through industry and policy participation, philanthropy, and company expansion.

Learn about how Kellogg is adapting to SB1383, the most recent catalyst for major change in California’s composting industry. Kellogg has always believed in the need for abundant compost production and application, and is finding ways to build regenerative partnerships.
