Sustainable Foods Summit – calls to action

The 11th edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit has held in Amsterdam in June with the aim to explore new horizons for eco-labels and sustainability in the food industry.

The message to food manufacturers was clear: focus on initiatives that ensure sustainability, reduce food waste through redirection, enhance the flavour of plant-based products, and to consider ethical egg labelling, digitisation and reducing the economic risk of climate change.

Key summit outcomes

Summit outcomes included:

  • Rising market share of sustainable food
  • Climate change – farming practices such as crop rotation that reduce climate change economic risk
  • Re-directing food waste – donations to various food organisations
  • Adding social value in supply chains – improving poverty through income generation
  • Plant-based food flavour – a targeted approach to enhance flavour of plant-based food
  • Power of plant proteins – the food industry is on the cusp of a plant-based revolution
  • Tech – increasing digital trends within grocery
  • Ethical labelling – ethical labelling of eggs to reduce male chick deaths
  • Sustainable packaging material and a call to go plastic-free
