Sustainable Agriculture

This case study explains how Smithfield Foods exceeded its grain sustainability goal and generated value by doing so. Authored by Datu Research with contributions from EDF and Smithfield, the case examines the different grain sustainability interventions tried by Smithfield — both those that worked, and those that didn’t — as well as the manure-to-energy projects Smithfield is implementing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25 percent by 2025, a first-of-its-kind commitment from a major protein company.

The case study offers seven best practices to assist other food companies and retailers in designing effective supply chain sustainability initiatives.
