Re-Imagining Favorite Foods: Applegate is known for re-inventing American classics like the beloved hot dog. We're going to keep doing that, with a plan to introduce certified, regeneratively-sourced favorites by the end of 2021.
Sowing Seeds for the Future: We are investing in the future of regenerative by working with leaders in the field to help consumers understand the effects of holistic systems on animal welfare, food quality and the environment.
Reaping Benefits Today: Applegate is collaborating with farmers to capture and promote the diverse regenerative practices already being employed on farms in our network. These include buffer strips, pollinator and wildlife refuge plots, species diversification and cover cropping.
Measuring Impact: We are dedicating resources to better understand and calculate the positive impact animals can have (like carbon sequestration and building soil biodiversity). We want to go beyond grass-fed beef to encourage the adoption of best regenerative practices across other species.
