Workshop to address abundance of food sustainability marks

08-Jul-2010

UK-based sustainability consultancy Two Tomorrows is hosting a one-day workshop to discuss food and drink certification standards – and whether we really need so many.

The organisation, which recently published its Tomorrow’s Value Rating study of the food sector, says there is a proliferation of product sustainability certification standards on the market, and many are focussed on agriculturally derived products.

But it asks: What do they all mean for the food and drink industry and what are their implications for brand management?

And has the time come for a globally recognised trustmark to be introduced?

The free roundtable will be held at Imperial University in London on 23rd September. Guest speaker is Rob Cameron, CEO of Fairtrade International.
