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 next North American edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit will be hosted in San Francisco on 17-18th January 2023. Other editions in this international series will take place in Europe (Amsterdam, 7-8th July 2022), Latin America (São Paulo, 29-30th November 2022), and the Asia-Pacific (Singapore, 4-5 September 2023). 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. The carbon footprint of each edition is determined by calculating the carbon and greenhouses gases. These emissions are offset by investing in soil composting and / or related projects.
