Hello BEST-ers,

Kellogg's released their annual corporate responsibility report on Earth Day. In it, they make sustainably-produced palm oil and inputs a commitment. They are the largest consumer of Louisiana rice, and are partnering with Louisiana State University and Louisiana Rice Mill to ensure sustainable rice production at a reasonable cost. Kellogg's is also making better water stewardship a goal. They have reduced water consumption at one plant 24% in the past year, and at another have used solar energy to heat water needed during production. They are looking to continue these reductions and management practices into this year. It's definitely a step in the right direction.
