The International Dairy Deli Bakery Association will be presented with the Trade Show News Network (TSNN) Best of Sustainability Award at the 2019 TSNN Awards. The awards will be held in Dallas, Texas, Nov. 15-17.
This year at its annual trade show in Orlando, Florida, in June, IDDBA focused on reducing its carbon dioxide emissions by running refrigerated and frozen trailers off of 208-volt, 60-amp, three-phase electricity. This resulted in the diversion of approximately 326-389 tons of CO2.
IDDBA’s sustainable efforts continued with food donations to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Exhibiting companies donated 176,315 pounds of food, which translates to 146,870 meals.
Headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, IDDBA is a nonprofit membership organization serving the dairy, deli, bakery, cheese and supermarket foodservice industries.
