  • Date: April 28th, May 6th, June TBA
  • Time: Multiple Times – please see registration form
  • Session Description: From makers to mongers, from retailers to customers – we all play an integral role in the world of cheese. As stakeholders in food supply, we have a responsibility to sustainability, both to the consumer and the changing climate of Earth. But with sometimes competing domains what do we really have a say on the matter? What are we doing now? What more can we do? Climate change affects us all.The Code Red Series will feature conversations between industry experts in the dairy and agricultural industries through the lens of sustainability and climate change. Each subject matter expert will engage in conversation with our host and co-host and share insights based on their research and practical expertise. Not only will you get to hear from these specialists, but you’ll be able to bring your own specific questions. Together we will better understand food supply and sustainability around this food we all love – cheese!
