Event description
Exploring the key principles of introducing low carbon practices to your production processes.

About this event

Event Overview

The term low carbon is now much more than a buzz word, with the Blue Planet effect changing the world and encouraging everyone to think and consider how we preserve our wonderful planet. For food and drink producers this stretches far beyond packaging and waste practices.

We all have a part to play in preserving our plant and operating our businesses in an ethical manner. However, doing so can sometimes be a challenge, with many manufacturers asking “where do we start?”

This session will provide you with an opportunity to feel proud about what you do and how you do it, in addition to easily being able to respond to tender opportunities.

When inputting information onto your tender document about how you are operating sustainably, your answer may well be the one that enables you to stand apart from other manufacturers and may be just the reason your product gets chosen.
