The Certified Sustainable Beef Framework provides a tool to certify farms, ranches and primary processing facilities against sustainability standards, enabling retail and foodservice companies to meet sustainable sourcing commitments, and consumers to purchase beef from certified operations.
The multi-stakeholder membership of the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef developed the Certified Sustainable Beef Framework with the mission of driving the advancement and recognition of beef sustainability in Canada through a world class operation–level certification program.
The Framework supports producers and processors in demonstrating the sustainability of their operations while at the same time assisting the retail and food service industry in their sustainable beef sourcing efforts. The Certified Sustainable Beef Framework also provides guidelines for credible and transparent messaging for communication with consumers via marketing and product labels.
