Meet Tomorrow’s Demand for Sustainability Today

About the Summit

Sustainability is among the most important imperatives the global food and consumer products industry faces today.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts that, by 2050, advances in food production technology will allow each of the world’s 8.9 billion people to eat an average 340 calories more per day than they did in 2000. Food production comes with a hefty carbon footprint and the retail food industry must begin the vital work of not only limiting that footprint, but limiting climate change and toxins in the environment.

The Global Sustainability Summit will provide companies throughout the food and consumer products industry with the tools, connections and solutions to move their sustainability programs to the next level.
