Sustainable food is having a moment. In the U.S. and abroad, demand for a variety of improved agricultural and livestock practices - organic, free-range, antibiotic-free - has skyrocketed. But how do we transition from a moment to a movement? How do we make sustainability standard practice at the largest food suppliers?
We sit down with Steve Levitsky, Vice President of Sustainability at Perdue Farms, to discuss how Perdue internalizes sustainable goals and leverages environmental scorecards and stakeholder relationships towards making their vision a reality across a global supply chain.
This webinar is moderated by Tad Radzinski, co-founder, and President of Sustainable Solutions Corporation.
Steve Levitsky is the Vice President of Sustainability with global responsibilities for Sustainability Programs at Perdue Farms. Steve reports directly to the Chairman and has 5 direct reports that focus on environmental and sustainability issues at Perdue Farms. His duties are primarily focused on the strategic direction of the sustainability program at Perdue Farms – both Foods and Agribusiness.
