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. In 2019, the European edition will be hosted in Amsterdam on 13-14th June, the Asia-Pacific edition in Bali on 2-3rd September, 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 will bring 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.
