Twitter Chat Recap: #GenMillsSusty with General Mills

GenMillsSustyWhat does sustainable sourcing involve for a global company like General Mills, and how can food companies source their ingredients most sustainably to protect the resources and communities upon which their businesses depend?

These commitments and goals are what we discussed with General Mills Chief Sustainability Officer Jerry Lynch and General Mills Sourcing Director Steve Peterson in a joint TriplePundit and CSRwire live Twitter chat on April 23, 2014.

The conversation explored upstream impacts, water usage in the supply chain and operations, and how supply chains spread across the developed and developing world shift General Mills’ sustainable sourcing approach.
