How can food and ingredient firms lower their environmental footprints by the use of sustainable raw materials? How can green consumer behaviour be encouraged? What can be done to encourage consumers to undertake responsible purchasing / consumption of food & beverage products? Such questions will be addressed in the next edition of this high-level summit.
