The 'Chew On This Tour' Visits Novus International17 June 2013
US - The “Chew on This Tour” visited Novus International on 12 June in St. Charles, MO as part of their tour to promote awareness of food insecurity.
The initiative represents a unique and interactive road show traveling the nation to heighten awareness about one of the biggest problems the world faces today: hunger.
“It is important for Novus to support initiatives like this one that are so close to our core values as a company. To feed a growing population is not an easy task, and it takes more than one entity to make it a reality,” noted Dan Meagher, President of Global Animal Nutrition Solutions at Novus International. “Novus is continually working to provide the animal agriculture industry with sustainable solutions that help achieve this goal.”
During this stop, Novus employees were able to learn more about the “Drive to feed the World” project, as well as some interesting and eye-opening facts about agriculture. Their spokesperson Bill Goldberg, former NFL lineman and champion wrestler, answered questions about world hunger and sustainable food production in an interactive video presentation.
The “Chew On This Tour” is spreading the word about food safety and quality, and sharing information about the use of technology in food production on the Drive to Feed to the World. To learn more about this initiative, visit www.drivetofeed.com.
