The European edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit will be hosted in Amsterdam on 15-16th June. For the first time, the executive summit will feature nature-positive production, upcycled foods, regenerative agriculture, ingredient sourcing trends, and marketing success stories.

The 14th European edition of the Sustainable Foods Summit

Since 2009, the Sustainable Foods Summit has been covering major sustainability developments in the food industry. How are sustainability schemes and eco-labels evolving in the food industry? With growing proliferation in labels, what are the prospects for a single sustainability standard for food products? What is the future outlook for plant-based foods? What developments are occurring in sustainable ingredients? How can food & beverage firms move towards circularity? How can operators close their material loops? Such questions are regularly addressed at this international series of summits.

Senior executives from the European food industry will be participating, enabling sponsors to target key decision-makers.
