We are proud to be Humane Food Sponsor at Sustainable Brands
We are proud to be the Humane Food Sponsor at the 2014 Sustainable Brands San Diego (SB ’14 San Diego) conference taking place this week, June 2-5.
Sustainable Brands, the premier global community of brand innovators, is going cage-free in its food offerings. As the event’s official Humane Foods Sponsor, we coordinated the serving of humane food options with the event’s venue and caterer Paradise Point Resort & Spa. Attendees will be served cage-free eggs, free-range chicken and humanely sourced yogurt.
We will also be stationed in the event’s Activation Hub during the event, with a full schedule of activities including providing an exclusive look at its video for businesses, sharing new research, and offering businesses risk assessments to identify potential areas for improvement in their supply chains. The Activation Hub at SB’14 San Diego will feature brands and next-generation business solutions in conversation and working together to create a net positive impact in the world today.
Animal welfare is critical to achieving real sustainability
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Sustainable Brands, a true leader and beacon for the business community, to bring humane, cage-free food to thousands of conference attendees,” said Kara Mergl, our U.S. Manager of Corporate Engagement. “This move to incorporate humanely sourced food is a tremendous one by Sustainable Brands and sends a powerful signal to global business leaders that animal welfare is critical to achieving real sustainability.”
"Sustainable Brands is delighted to be partnering with World Animal Protection to ensure that our dairy food options are humanely raised and processed in a conscientious manner," states Valerie Miller, Producer, Live Events at Sustainable Brands. "Our sustainable event framework was developed in accordance with the leading international event industry standards, ISO 20121, and providing eggs, yogurt, and other dairy products that have been raised according to the strictest animal handling protocols allows us to move closer to our sustainability goals."
We collaborate with businesses to increase the welfare of the billions of animals involved in global food production by working to help ensure that animals used in companies’ supply chains and operations are treated humanely. Through our Choose Cage-Free campaign, we empower consumers to commit to cage-free eggs and products and we work with businesses to adopt cage-free practices.
