Pennsylvania is a worldwide leader in agricultural and food production. Known as the "Snack Food Capital of the World," Pennsylvania produces many products such as pretzels, potato chips, confectioneries, chocolate and many more.  By incorporating sustainable practices into food production operations you can experience benefits including greater financial success with lower production costs, improved product quality, increased market share, improved environmental performance, better relationships with stakeholders, and lower risks.

If you are a food producer or are you thinking of starting a food manufacturing business then please join us for this no-fee webinar to learn best about resources and best practices for improving your bottom line.

Ann Hoogenboom, Sustainability Coordinator for Agri-Mark/Cabot Creamery Cooperative, is our guest speaker for this webinar.  With an extensive background and years of experience working in the sustainability field, Ann will discuss the benefits of being a cooperative, “dairy” as a solution to climate change, lessons learned from participating in a network of green teams, why it pays to be a B Corp, and farm power as a model for closed loop systems.

Jeremy Hancher, EMAP environmental consultant, will provide attendees with small business resources and things any small business involved in the food industry can do to implement sound environmental practices as both a startup and existing business.
