Join Stoel Rives partner Anne Glazer in San Francisco for the fifth annual Sustainable Foods Summit, presented by Organic Monitor. Stoel Rives is proud to be a sponsor of this event.
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. What impact do organic, fair trade and other eco-labels have on sustainability? Will there ever be a single sustainability standard for food products? How can sustainability performance be measured? Through the use of case study presentations and expert panel discussions, topics such as sustainability initiatives, sustainable ingredients and sustainable packaging will be covered.
Anne will participate in the discussion panel Marketing & Distribution Innovations. This session will highlight the importance of effective sustainable food and beverage marketing to build consumer trust due to the recent influx of brands accused of "greenwashing." She will also go over the regulatory environment for labeling, marketing and trademarks, as well as best practices in marketing sustainable foods and beverages.
Like its predecessors, this Sustainable Foods Summit will bring together key stakeholders in the food industry, including food manufacturers, ingredient and raw material suppliers, retailers and distributors, industry organizations and certification agencies, researchers and academics, investors, and more.
The Sustainable Foods Summit is a carbon-neutral event. In partnership with Soil & More, the carbon footprint of the summit will be calculated and Organic Monitor will offset these carbon and greenhouse gas emissions by investing in soil composting projects.
