About the summit

Since 2009, the Sustainable Foods Summit has been covering major sustainability developments in the food industry. How do organic, fairtrade and other eco-labelling schemes encourage sustainable development? What is the future evolution of plant-based foods? How is innovation pushing the green agenda? What developments are occurring in green packaging materials? What can be done to help the food industry make the transition to a circular economy? Such questions are regularly addressed at this international series of summits.

The North American edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit will be hosted online on 24-27th January 2022. Other editions in this international series will take place in Europe (Amsterdam, 9-10th June 2022), the Asia-Pacific (Singapore, 5-6 September 2022), and Latin America (São Paulo, 29-30th November 2022). Each edition brings together some of the leading organizations involved in sustainability and eco-labels in the food industry. Please contact us for more details.

Organized by Ecovia Intelligence (formerly Organic Monitor), the Sustainable Foods Summit is a climate-neutral event.
