Dairy Industry Reducing Its Environmental Impact

International Dairy Foods Association's Worldwide Food Expo to focus on environmental sustainability and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.

In recent years, consumers have become more and more interested in the environmental impact made by their favorite foods during its journey from farm to table. To increase understanding of sustainable dairy food operations, the International Dairy Foods Association’s Worldwide Food Expo is putting environmental sustainability at the forefront of this year’s four-day conference.

The Worldwide Food Expo, held at McCormick Place in Chicago from October 28th to October 31st, will host a Sustainability Pavilion, which will showcase suppliers with services and products geared specifically to offer sustainable solutions to the dairy industry. Highlighting the latest innovations and trends, the Pavilion and a series of educational sessions will help dairy executives, engineers, buyers and other key personnel make operational decisions that are good for their plants and our planet.

Direct Energy Business, the primary energy attendee at the EXPO, will be greening the electricity usage of the entire Worldwide Food Expo by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to highlight sustainability and energy management options as a method to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

"The diary food industry is energy intensive. Implementing a holistic energy management strategy is one way for farmers and dairy food companies to reduce their environmental impact and carbon footprint," says Mike Lindert, spokesperson for Direct Energy Business.
