UK Food Industry Sustainability In A Global Context in association with the US Sustainability Alliance
May 30, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Whilst Brexit is perceived in some quarters as a threat to the industry; it is unquestionably an opportunity. It is a chance to address a global landscape rather than merely the pan-European picture. Whilst the Department for Exiting the European Union examines trade deals with old partners and new, new global dynamics are presenting themselves to the UK. So too are we now able to re-define our own values in areas such as animal welfare, innovation, supply chain processes, integrity and responsibility, provenance, labour and conservation.
Now is the time for the food industry to form its own narrative to take advantage of this change in circumstances.
Footprint has teamed up with the US Sustainability Alliance to examine a more global picture of commitment to environmental and social sustainability. Footprint Forum will give platform to representatives of different regions; speakers and panelists will be looking at regulation and legislation, innovation and trends on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond. We will assess opportunities for collaboration and partnerships for the UK beyond Brexit and seek to broaden the sector’s horizons.
Full line up speakers to be announced shortly.
