CRSB was formed in 2014 to address the desire for a collaborative approach to defining, discussing and improving sustainability in the Canadian beef industry. Founding members of the CRSB had a vision of creating a space where beef producers, processors, agriculture and agri-food businesses, retail, foodservice companies, governments, researchers, academic institutions, animal care and environmental organizations could collaborate together on the common goal of continuously improving the sustainability of beef production in Canada. The CRSB is a regional roundtable of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef.
