Reflecting the continued importance of sustainability to the future of the protein sector, the annual Animal Agriculture Sustainability Summit will once again be held at the 2019 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta. The Animal Agriculture Sustainability Summit is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019, and is offered free of charge to all registered IPPE attendees.

Sponsored by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the Animal Agriculture Sustainability Summit program will focus on current sustainability topics relevant to the animal agriculture industry. Representatives from Tyson Foods, JBS USA and other companies will provide insight on their company’s efforts to advance sustainability practices and processes. There will also be an update on the newly formed Poultry & Egg Sustainability and Welfare Foundation and the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Poultry & Eggs. The program will conclude with a ceremony announcing the winners of USPOULTRY’s Family Farm Environmental Excellence Awards for 2019.


IPPE will be held Feb. 12-14 in Atlanta, Ga., and is a collaboration of three trade shows – the International Feed Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Meat Expo – representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by USPOULTRY, the American Feed Industry Association and the North American Meat Institute.
