The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef announced this week it has approved global Principles and Criteria for defining sustainable beef and sustainable beef production practices.
The Principles and Criteria took more than a year-and-a-half to develop. Ruaraidh "Rory" Petre, GRSB executive director, says developing the definition required extensive negotiation.
"Arriving at a common definition, which includes five core principles and detailed criteria for sustainable beef, has been a difficult task and one which took a lot of hours and a great deal of negotiation," says Petre.
