The Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy® announced the winners of the third annual U.S. Dairy Sustainability Awards on May 14, 2014, at a special ceremony in Washington, D.C. The program recognizes dairy farms, businesses and collaborative partnerships that are committed to stewardship and sustainability, delivering exceptional results that are good for business, good for the environment and good for the community.
“The award winners embody the dairy industry’s pledge to provide a healthy future for the next generation through nutritious foods and beverages, community development and innovative business practices,” said Barbara O’Brien, president of the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy. “This pledge was recently corroborated by the White House’s reference to the voluntary actions and continuous improvements of dairy farms and companies in its announcement of a Biogas and Energy Roadmap.”
