Our Assessment:  

Land O’ Lakes, Inc has various subsidiaries including Purina Mills, PMI, and Mazuri. Another subsidiary, Truterra, is a company solely dedicated to improving sustainable practices for farms and agricultural businesses. Though this may have a large impact, the company’s forward facing sustainability policies are lacking. The company has outlined a Dairy 2025 Commitment which calls for the company to work with 1,600 member dairy farms to complete an industry-leading on-farm sustainability assessment aligned with the U.S. Dairy Stewardship Commitment while maintaining universal compliance with the National Milk Producers Federation’s National Dairy Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) program. This is in hopes to assess the environmental impact of 100% of their milk supply by 2025.
