We’ve teamed up with supply chain partners, like Turkey Hill Dairy and Giant Food, to put more power behind our common sustainability goals.
These partners work alongside our farms to help implement conservation plans, waste management systems and other sustainability efforts. Since 2017, our partnerships have earned more than $4 million in grant funding to help the dairy supply chain become more efficient.
One such partnership, the Giant Clean Water Partnership, pairs our farms with retail partner, Giant, and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay. The partnership uses the Alliance’s knowledge of conservation practices to help our farms become more efficient and uses Giant’s consumer reach to help bring sustainable solutions all the way from farm to table.
Our partnership with Turkey Hill Dairy and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay was awarded the 2020 Outstanding Supply Chain Collaboration from the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy. The partnership developed solutions like modern housing for cows, manure storage, tree planting, stream fencing, cover crops, conservation tillage and nutrient management. These practices improve the farms’ soil, water and manure management, which will positively impact local waterways and the Chesapeake Bay.
