New Zealand roundtable for sustainable beef
Posted on Saturday, 23 November 2019
ANZCO is part of the New Zealand Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (NZRSB) launched in November.
The NZRSB has joined the prestigious Global Roundtable aiming to produce the world’s most sustainable beef while also continuing to focus on industry improvements that are economically viable, socially responsible and environmentally sound. ANZCO, along with Beef + Lamb New Zealand, Greenlea, Fonterra, McDonald’s, Silver Fern Farms and The World Wide Fund for Nature, are the founding partners.
The group recognised the growing importance the world is placing on being able to spell out sustainable credentials across the supply chain; and have defined the standards for a New Zealand setting and identified metrics for achieving those standards so they can be put into practice. This is vital to the long-term viability of the wider industry.
The New Zealand launch was supported by international members of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef who visited our Canterbury site, local farms as well as attending the Canterbury A&P Show.
