Structured debate on the creation of thriving, sustainable producer communities and resilient, assured supply chains with speakers from Bonsucro, Pepsico, Mars, Bunge, CSC Sugar, Nordzucker AG, ISCC, and many others. Registration for this event is open now

Innovation Forum is hosting the second annual Sustainable Sugar Forum ‘Sustainable sugarcane: how companies can deliver’ on 1st-2nd December 2016 in London in partnership with Bonsucro.

 

This event is designed for all stakeholders in the sugar value chain to discuss the commercial opportunities of the growing demand for sustainable sugarcane and how companies can build sugar supply chains that are ethical, resilient and secure from environmental pressures.

 

Some of the key topics being addressed include:

  • Responsible sugar sourcing strategy, implementing effective programmes to source 100% sustainable sugar (for both food production and biofuels)
  • Addressing future environmental pressures such as loss of biodiversity, climate change and water scarcity in sugar supply chains
  • Social supply chain challenges around smallholder farmer development, land rights, securing livelihoods, financing, improving productivity and yield
  • Investing in technology – impacts of communications, mechanisation, traceability and certification on smallholders

 

Whilst primarily focused on sugarcane, the sugar beet industry is warmly invited to share in this debate.

 

Senior executives at Mars, Coca-Cola Company, Nordzucker, Solidaridad, Shell, Fairtrade Foundation, ISEAL, SAI, ED&F Man, Pepsico, ISCC have already confirmed their participation.

 

Further information on speakers and updates to the agenda are available here.
