Date: 25 May 2021
Location: Online Webinar
Event Type: Principles & Criteria
Animal feed producers and traders, meat and dairy producers, as well as retailers have the opportunity to create change by asking their suppliers whether the feed, feed additives or milk replacements are sourced sustainably, and if not, how they plan to address this.
By choosing to source RSPO certified material, companies show that they are taking concrete actions to benefit people and the planet. However, as the animal feed sector is not as consumer facing, stimulating uptake remains a challenge.
With the aim of engaging with current RSPO members and other stakeholders of these sectors to provide further information and showcase best practices and newly available resources, RSPO is pleased to announce the following webinars taking place on 25 May 2021:
