Land O'Lakes, Inc. formed a new business unit called SUSTAIN to focus on aligning environmental sustainability efforts across the Land O'Lakes, Inc. enterprise.

"Our business portfolio, which includes Winfield US crop inputs, Purina animal feed and Land O'Lakes foods, gives us a 'farm-to-fork' view of what sustainability truly means for our industry. We believe that view, partnered with the tools and technology we have developed, will help sustainability practices across the value chain of all our businesses and those of our partners in the industry," stated Chris Policinski, Land O'Lakes, Inc. president and CEO.

SUSTAIN will help to ensure sustainable crop production by delivering insights, products and services; enhancing sustainability within the dairy foods and feed businesses; and partnering with other entities, including government, to improve efficiency and collaboration on conservation and sustainability programs.

The SUSTAIN business will be led by new Senior Vice President Matt Carstens. Previously, Carstens was vice president of United Suppliers, Inc.

Recently, Land O'Lakes, Inc., also announced a new public-private partnership with the State of Minnesota to protect and improve water quality across the state.
