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 are some of the common ways food and ingredient firms are reducing their environmental impacts? Is the way forward for sustainable sourcing 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 and communities? Such questions are regularly addressed at this international series of summits.

The Asia-Pacific edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit will be hosted in Singapore on 4-5th September. The European edition will take place in Amsterdam on 7-8th June, the Latin American edition in São Paulo on 29-30th November, whilst the North American edition in San Francisco on 16-17th January 2019 . 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 edition, the carbon footprint will be determined by calculating the carbon and greenhouses gases. These emissions will be offset by investing in soil composting projects.
