BOSTON, MA, Mar. 25 /CSRwire/ - Pure Strategies, Inc., a leading sustainability consulting firm with expertise in food industry sustainability, announced today the publication by Wiley Blackwell of a new book that shares the critical steps to feeding the world’s growing population sustainably.  Authored by Cheryl Baldwin, Vice President of Consulting for Pure Strategies, The 10 Principles of Food Industry Sustainability provides both inspiration and practical information to help the food industry move toward the goal of nourishing the growing global population while preserving and revitalizing natural resources, enhancing economic development and equity, and closing resource loops. 

The 10 Principles of Food Industry Sustainability addresses the complex global food system by laying out critical sustainability principles and sharing the latest data, best practices and tools, and real-world case examples from 38 market leaders.  The book draws from Baldwin’s experience consulting on sustainability for several of the world’s top food industry brands and retailers, her academic background and prior experience working within the food industry, and original research.

Cheryl Baldwin will discuss key concepts and case examples from The 10 Principles of Food Industry Sustainability during a free webinar on April 30, 2015 where she will be joined by Cheri Chastain, Sustainability Manager at Sierra Nevada.  For more information or to register, go to

“Although progress has been made, the prospect of safely and sustainably feeding nine billion people by mid-century can seem incredibly daunting.  This book can help meet this critical challenge by breaking solutions down into vital principles and practices, and by providing a combination of practical tools and techniques as well as inspiring examples showing that, with the right approach, we can succeed,” said Cheryl Baldwin of the book. 

“This book serves as a useful reference guide for sustainability practitioners and strategists within the vital global food industry, providing in-depth research, tools, and case studies to help navigate complex issues and find solutions, and it provides hope for a more sustainable food system,” said Shauna Sadowski, Director of Sustainability for organic and natural foods company Annie’s, Inc.
