The Food Industry’s Role in Sustainable Eating & Circular Economy
Cher’s session starts by exploring the societal shifts that will need to take place to support a more sustainable food system. Through this lens she discusses how and why communities and businesses are embracing circular economy concepts to combat environmental priorities like carbon and food waste. Cher then shifts the audience’s focus to the food industry – examining what needs to change within the industry, the influence of dietary guidelines and sustainable development goals, and how food manufacturers are helping consumers shift to more sustainable eating.
