About the summit

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, etc. The next European edition will take place in Amsterdam on 9-10th June 2022. Other editions in this international series will be in Latin America (22-25 Nov 2021), North America (19-20 Jan 2022), and the Asia-Pacific (5-6 Sep 2022). The summits bring together some of the most influential organisations involved in sustainability and eco-labels in the food industry. Please contact us for more details.
