Addressing sustainability from an industry perspective involves a complex set of drivers and responses. We believe that a coordinated, cooperative effort involving the entire supply chain is needed to effectively address sustainability challenges.
The food and grocery manufacturing industry recognises the need to respond to these issues and reflect changing values and consumer preferences around sustainability into business as usual practices. Sustainability needs to be integrated into, rather than an adjunct to, corporate decision making. Industry understands that, despite tough economic and market conditions, it needs to make a greater level of commitment to sustainability. This new paradigm also requires willingness from those that have made this transition to share their experiences and insights with the rest of the industry, so that the industry as a whole can make greater progress.
