This teaching case challenges the reader to contemplate what they would do in the absence of a clear crisis or controversy. Good managers proactively solve problems before they become crises. Great leaders engage stakeholders to develop a vision and a plan to realize it. In this case, enough facts are presented to either engage in a discussion of principles and law-related research into creative courses of action. The teaching note explains what really happened: how a food supply company realized the "win-win-wins" of adopting sustainable business practices, and how third party standards and laws support the success of these initiatives.
