business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Walmart has announced that as part of its broader sustainability agenda, it plans to source all of its beef products sustainably by 2025.

Walmart says, "We aspire to source our fresh beef products more sustainably by 2025, including prioritizing soil health, animal welfare and responsible use of antibiotics. We will continue working with suppliers to improve grain sourcing and grazing management practices across a total of 12 million acres (or more than nine million football fields)... We expect our suppliers will not tolerate animal abuse of any kind and support our position on the judicious use of antibiotics in farm animals."
