About the summit
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, RSPO, etc. What is the outlook for such eco-labels? What are some of the common ways food and ingredient firms are reducing their impacts? What is the future direction for sustainable sourcing: is it with third party standards or in-house schemes? How are sustainability metrics used by the food industry? How can sustainable agriculture help improve food security? Such questions are regularly addressed at this international series of summits.
The 3rd Asia-Pacific edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit will be hosted in Bali on 2-3rd September. Also in 2019, the European edition will be hosted in Amsterdam on 13-14th June, and the Latin American edition in São Paulo on 28-29th November. The tenth North American edition will take place in San Francisco on 22-23 January 2020. Each edition brings together some of the most influential organisations involved in sustainability and eco-labels in the food industry. Please contact us for more details.
Organised by Ecovia Intelligence (formerly Organic Monitor), the Sustainable Foods Summit is a climate-neutral event. Like the previous editions, the carbon footprint will be determined by calculating the carbon and greenhouses gases. These emissions will then be offset.
