Keywords:packer, retailer, sustainability, beef, supply chain
Almost a decade ago, key stakeholders involved directly in, or associated with, the global beef industry, came together in Denver, Colo., for the first Global Conference on Sustainable Beef. The purpose was to discuss the value of creating a forum to define beef sustainability, identify opportunities to take action, engage other stakeholders, and generally advance beef sustainability globally. Cargill and McDonald’s were both participants in the Denver conference and were both founding member of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB), as well as the two North American Roundtables, the United States Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (USRSB) and the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB).
