Supply chain cost and safety, agricultural efficiency and product design/shelf-life are just some of the areas the new food industry circular economy will impact

 

About this event

Organizations throughout the Food & Retail Supply Chain have made commitments to remove or reduce their environmental impacts as soon as 2025.

Particularly difficult will be the pledges to remove or reduce the use of ‘virgin plastics’ and non-recyclable materials, a significant challenge for organizations, and their packaging suppliers.

Without a solid environmental foundation on which to embrace these challenging targets, organizations throughout the Food & Retail Supply Chain will continue to struggle to achieve these important environmental sustainability commitments and goals.

 

What you'll learn

Given the social, legal and economic influences that will affect the entire global food insdustry, we predict an ultimate food production goal will be to implement the principles of the circular economy, including:

  • • How the circular economy is defined in the Food Sector
  • • What are the UN Sustainable Development goals?
  • • What are the principles of the circular economy?
  • • How to convert commitments into demonstrable actions
  • • How to enhance productivity and use natural resources more effectively
  • • How to create a solid environmental foundation

And much more.
