New Horizons for Eco-Labels and Sustainability
The food industry is under growing pressure to reduce its environmental and social impacts, however what practical methods are successful and what role do eco-labels play? How can sustainable ingredients contribute to the ecological / social footprint? What are the gamut of sustainable packaging options available to food and beverage companies? What are the best-practices in the industry? The next edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit aims to address such issues in a high-level forum.
The fifth edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit will take place in San Francisco on 17-18th January 2012. Major topics on the summit agenda include sustainable proteins, food security, sourcing local, raw foodism, ethical finance, ecological packaging, sustainability metrics, marketing best-practices and consumer insights.
Like previous events organized by Organic Monitor, the summit will bring together key stake-holders in the food industry to debate and discuss key industry issues. The Sustainable Foods Summit is a series of international summits that focuses on the leading issues the food industry faces concerning sustainability and eco-labels, such as Organic, Fair trade, Rainforest Alliance, etc.
