Sustainable Foods Summit
January 18, 2017—January 20, 2017
The aim of the Sustainable Foods Summit is to explore new horizons for eco-labels and sustainability in the food industry by discussing key industry issues. How do organic, fairtrade and other eco-labeling schemes further sustainability? With growing proliferation in labels, what are the prospects for a single sustainability standard for food products? What are the practical application of sustainability metrics? What advances are occurring in sustainable ingredients? What developments are happening in formulation, production and marketing of sustainable food and beverages? Such questions are regularly addressed at this international series of summits.
Since 2009, the Sustainable Foods Summit has been covering major developments in the food industry concerning sustainability and and eco-labels, such as Organic, Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, UTZ Certified, etc. Organized by Organic Monitor, the Sustainable Foods Summit is a climate-neutral event. The carbon footprint of the European and North American summits were determined by calculating the carbon and greenhouses gases. These emissions were offset by investing in soil composting projects.
