Sustainable Goals for More Sustainable Food

Waste management, water conservation, renewable energy – we aren’t strangers to these words, and neither are you. Sustainability is on everyone’s minds, which has companies looking at their own sustainable practices, as well as those of their food suppliers.

So to help you get a better feel for what we’re doing to lessen our impact on the planet, we’re sharing some of our milestones, environmental goals and plans for achieving those goals.

ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS FOR 2020

Remind Me About Sustainable Food

We’re all pretty clear on what it means generally, but what does it mean specifically?

WHAT IS IT?

What is sustainable food?

Sustainable food is produced in a system that is good for the environment and for people, that’s humane to animals and to food and farm workers, and that supports rural and urban communities. It’s a way of food production that generates abundance while ensuring future generations can do the same.1
