Since 2009, the Sustainable Foods Summit has been shining a spotlight on major developments in the food industry concerning sustainability and eco-labels, such as Organic, Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance. The 2017 event will focus on exploring further new horizons in these fields. Taking place in Amsterdam from 1 to 2 June, the summit will enable Givaudan to contribute to and take part in discussions on key sustainability topics with senior executives from across the industry. Givaudan is proud to be a Gold Sponsor of the 2017 summit, and will be participating in various other sustainability-related events throughout the year.
Looking to the future
The key themes of the European edition of the summit will be food ingredients, social and customer impacts and marketing best-practices. This high-level forum will look into questions such as: how can food companies and retailers address their sustainability footprints? What are the latest developments in sustainable ingredients? And how can brands enhance the social value of their products?
