Natural Grocers
Food and Agriculture Advacacy
Alan Lewis directs government affairs and food and agriculture policy for Natural Grocers, a large retail health food chain. A Colorado native, he also oversees organic certification and compliance, and supports the development of small local food makers. Alan is active in several national trade and advocacy organizations, sitting on the board of the Organic and Natural Health Association (ONHA) and the Boulder County Food and Agriculture Policy Council. A prolific commentator and dynamic presenter, he has been a speaker and panelist at dozens of food-related events, including a presentation at TEDx Boulder in 2014. Long a student of political activism, his focus is on communicating with policy makers and stakeholders at the federal, state, and local level using frameworks that are non-confrontational and inclusive. He has lived for extended periods in Portugal, Haiti, and Dominica, where he developed a keen appreciation for the variables of agriculture within ecological, cultural, political, and economic contexts.
