The International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA) said it 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 Nov. 15-17.
At its latest annual tradeshow, IDDBA 19, the Madison, Wis.-based association focused on reducing its CO2 emissions by running refrigerated and frozen trailers off of 208-volt, 60-amp, three-phase electricity. That resulted in a 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, translating to 146,870 meals, IDDBA said.
