Bennett speaks on sustainability at UEP Board meeting

February 6, 2020

Ryan Bennett, executive director of the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Poultry & Eggs (US-RSPE), and the affiliated International Poultry Welfare Alliance (IPWA) provided an overview of both organizations at the UEP board meeting on January 28. US-RSPE focuses on a sustainability framework in three key areas: people, planet and poultry. Committees for each of these areas are working on outcome-based measures to show continuous improvement over time.

UEP and several UEP members have joined US-RSPE. UEP President Chad Gregory encouraged other member companies to join and help build the sustainability framework for the egg industry.
