Who We Are and What We Do

The ISGA is the professional association of sprout growers and companies that supply products and services to the sprout industry. The ISGA was founded in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to promote the sprout industry and to encourage the exchange of information among sprout growers and commercial suppliers.

ISGA’s mission is to promote global collaboration among professional sprout growers and suppliers, in order to promote the health benefits of sprouts, and to work with researchers and government agencies to assure the safe production of sprouted foods.

The ISGA currently has members in North and South America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and Australia. All ISGA members are welcome to participate by attending ISGA Board Meetings, joining an ISGA committee or taking an available seat on the Board of Directors.
