Elizabeth Candelario 

 June 1, 2017

Elizabeth has worked at the intersection of food, climate, and agriculture for the past two decades. She currently serves as Director of Strategic Partnerships for Mad Agriculture, a non-profit that works with farmers across the US to help them transition from conventional to organic and regenerative agriculture by providing agronomic know-how, operating capital, and market access. Elizabeth co-directs their Mad Markets program, connecting regenerative farmers to values-aligned buyers to improve farm profitability, to help CPG companies meet their ESG goals, and to leverage the marketplace to drive adoption of regenerative farming. Mad Markets services include origination, contracting, brokerage services, and marketing support, with the goal of developing new and disruptive models that move supply chains to value chains that honor and reward farmers for stewarding their land for people and planet.

Prior to joining Mad Agriculture, Elizabeth served as President of Demeter USA- the non-profit certifier of Biodynamic farms and products. Elizabeth collaborated with leading natural food companies and retailers to bring Biodynamic products to store shelves in order to drive adoption of Biodynamic agriculture and educate citizen consumers about why they should support regenerative farming with their grocery budgets.
