USRSB announces Sysco Corporation as newest member

29 April 2020

The US Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (USRSB), a nonprofit initiative that crafted the widely-adopted US Beef Industry Sustainability Framework, welcomes Sysco Corporation to the ranks.

Sysco is joining a leading group of companies who believe in US beef,” USRSB Chair Ben Weinheimer said. “As we continue to expand membership and promote implementation of our Framework across the value chain, we increase trust in US beef—how it is raised, processed and distributed across our country. USRSB is excited to work with Sysco as the beef value chain continues its beef sustainability journey.”

As a global company, Sysco sells, markets and distributes food to restaurants, health care and educational facilities, hotels, and other foodservice and hospitality businesses. The company has made long-term commitments to animal welfare and sustainability, actions reinforced by membership in the USRSB.

“Ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of animals is a critical priority in our supply chain, and we believe that collaboration drives progress,” said Neil Russell, Sysco’s vice president, corporate affairs.

“Now more than ever, it is important for us as the leader in our industry to support efforts by the USRSB toward advancing a responsible and sustainable US beef value chain.”

Sysco Corporation joins 120 individuals, companies and operations, allied industries, research institutions and non-governmental organisations that work to ensure the US is a trusted global leader in beef sustainability.
