Regenerative Mac and Cheese
Play • 41 min

Annie’s, a subsidiary of General Mills, announced in 2020 that it was “going beyond organic” and “leading the packaged food industry toward regenerative agriculture” with pictures on the box of the farmers who had produced the ingredients with “regenerative” methods.

In this episode, we bring together two of our frequent guests on this podcast, Dr. Urvashi Rangan, and Patty Lovera, to help explain regenerative agriculture, its connection to climate, and why a boxed Mac and Cheese brand is committing itself to a set of agricultural practices, and wanting to tell its customers all about it. We also get into whether or not we can trust “green” commitments from big food companies and explore what we can look for, as consumers, to know whether a company’s claims can be backed up.
