Scoular appoints Joshua Mellinger its first Director of Sustainability.

Mellinger will lead Scoular’s corporate sustainability program, as well as partner with and support Scoular’s business units in their work to create customized sustainability solutions for and with the company’s grain, feed and food customers worldwide, as well as its farmer-producer partners.

“Josh possesses deep experience creating and executing sustainability programs in the agriculture and food industries,” said Megan Belcher, Scoular Senior Vice President and General Counsel, who leads Scoular’s overall corporate sustainability and ESG efforts. “I am thrilled he is leading Scoular’s efforts to innovatively grow sustainability practices that will create a positive impact on our planet.”

In December, Scoular announced its five-year sustainability strategy built on five pillars: reducing its carbon footprint; fostering responsible marine sourcing; engaging in its communities; promoting diversity and inclusion; and upholding workplace health and safety.

Mellinger, who is based at Scoular’s global headquarters in Omaha, NE, has more than 15 years of sustainability and supply chain experience working with large corporations.

He joins Scoular after 10 years at Deloitte Consulting in Houston, where he most recently served as head of sustainability, climate change, and fresh supply chain. He graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in information systems and decision sciences and earned his MBA from the University of Michigan.

A 128-year-old company with $6 billion in sales, Scoular creates safe and reliable supply chain solutions for end-users and suppliers of grain, feed ingredients, and food ingredients.
