Abstract

To reach net zero goals, global food industry leaders are beginning to request that their suppliers take data-driven actions to reduce their environmental footprint. This project aims to develop a forward-thinking sustainability strategy which can position Philadelphia Macaroni Company (PMC) as a key sustainable supplier. We determined future requirements for food industry suppliers through industry benchmarking, informational interviews, and an assessment of PMC’s carbon accounting tool. The project focuses on four key metrics material to PMC: greenhouse gas emissions, sustainable agriculture, waste, and water. Our findings indicate that while leading companies have set ambitious sustainability linked supply chain goals, they are not yet actively engaging suppliers in these goals. We recommend a strategy that focuses on three scenarios (meets minimum expectation, adds value and future proofing) to prepare them for the future alignment with industry and meet key customer expectations.
