Walmart stumps for beef sustainability
Sustainability has been a buzzword for years. And whether you agree or disagree with it, it’s here to stay, especially when companies like Walmart buy into the concept.
Four years ago, Walmart committed to sourcing 20 key commodities more sustainably by 2025. “As the needs of the world have shifted, we are furthering our original goal while staying true to one of our earliest sustainability commitments – to sell more sustainable products while maintaining the low prices customers expect,” according to David Baskin, merchandising vice president meat, Walmart U.S. & Kyle Kinnard, vice president and divisional merchandise manager of meat and seafood, Sam's Club U.S.
“Beef is one of these commodities. As the world population continues to grow, so does the global demand for protein, which brings a unique set of sustainability challenges and opportunities. Livestock grazing and beef production in the U.S. can be part of a resilient, sustainable food system. Grazing lands cover about 40% of the United States. This includes iconic ecosystems and important wildlife.”
