Dairy Foods Podcast: Episode 11 — Addressing climate change via the Farm Powered Strategic Alliance
Jed Davis, director of sustainability for Cabot Creamery, and Britt Lundgren, director of organic and sustainable agriculture for Stonyfield Organic, join us for Episode 11 of the “Let’s Talk Dairy” podcast. Cabot Creamery and Stonyfield Organic recently joined the Farm Powered Strategic Alliance. Founded in 2020 by Vanguard Renewables, Unilever, Starbucks and Dairy Farmers of America, the alliance “aims to accelerate long-term commitments to avoid or eliminate food waste first and repurpose what can’t be eliminated into renewable energy via farm-based anaerobic digesters.”
In this episode, Davis and Lundgren discuss:
- Why the Farm Powered Strategic Alliance is a good fit for both dairy processing companies.
- How the alliance will help the B Corporation Certified companies further ongoing sustainability efforts.
- How these types of sustainability efforts can improve consumer perception of the dairy industry.
