Thursday, Dec. 12, 1 to 2 p.m. CDT
Food companies face unprecedented pressure to navigate growing public expectations for a sustainable food supply. The stakes are high as one well-meaning decision can have unintended and significant consequences that actually undermine a sustainable food system. Decision-making is further complicated by a broadening definition of sustainability that goes beyond the environment to animal welfare, worker safety, food packaging and waste, health and wellness, ingredients, sourcing and a range of additional issues that impact people, animals and the planet.
How do food companies choose a sound path forward in this evolving environment?
Join The Center for Food Integrity (CFI) Thurs., Dec. 12, from 1 to 2 p.m. CDT, for “A Food System Under Pressure: Navigating Sustainability Demands and Tradeoffs.”
Charlie Arnot, CFI CEO, and Marty Matlock, executive director of the University of Arkansas Resiliency Center, will detail the new definition of sustainability, public attitudes and growing pressures, tradeoff case studies and a framework designed to help organizations:
- Set sustainability priorities that reflect company values
- Evaluate tradeoffs on existing or potential sustainability practices
- Respond to demands when advocacy groups come calling
- What to do when an advocacy group makes demands
They’ll equip you with a comprehensive, three-pronged approach to make sustainability decisions with confidence. Feel free to submit questions you’d like the presenters to address when you register.
