MAKING STRIDES IN SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES YEAR ROUND
(Williamsville, NY) – When you take great care in choosing your business partners, you find people who share the same goals. That’s why we’re proud to partner with the American Dairy Association as well as Flashfoods®, among others, who make sustainability practices a priority year round.

American Dairy Association Embracing their commitment to mother earth, the Dairy Association has launched an entire campaign centered on their practices entitled Dairy – Good for You Good For the Planet. From farm to table, dairy is a pivotal solution for sustainable nutrition. American Dairy Association North East takes pride in dairy farmer’s commitment in protecting the land, caring for their animals and producing high-quality milk. In fact, did you know dairy provides nearly 20% of the protein in American diets and more than 50% of our calcium and vitamin D, yet is only responsible for 2% of the U.S. carbon footprint? And since 2007 alone they have been able to produce milk using a 19% smaller carbon footprint, 30% less water, and 21% less land! Those are some mooo-ving statistics!
