People have an interest in who grows their food, where it comes from and how it’s made. They look to the entire food chain for these answers. The U.S. Dairy Stewardship Commitment provides a transparent way to demonstrate responsible production practices and continuous improvement efforts across the full value chain.

Companies that voluntarily adopt the U.S. Dairy Stewardship Commitment agree to follow a rigorous set of standards that demonstrate positive social, economic and environmental impact and contribute to U.S. dairy’s ability to track, aggregate and report on progress.

Benefits of the commitment for companies include:
-Builds confidence that dairy farmers, and suppliers employ consistent, credible and globally recognized reporting measures.
-Advances and demonstrates U.S. dairy’s positive impact across important areas like animal care, food safety and the environment.
-Validates the combined work of U.S. dairy farmers, cooperatives and companies to nourish communities, continuously improve and be socially responsible.
-Ensures ongoing collaboration with retailers, nonprofits, academia, government and other key stakeholders through the Dairy Sustainability Alliance® to -advance sustainable food systems.
