Description

Sustainable Futures logo

You are invited to join with Sustainable Futures partners to discuss sustainability and the importance of knowledge sharing along the supply chain. Collaboration is of greater importance during periods of economic change and the rapid technological advancement forecast for the Food & Drink sector in coming years.

Financial resilience is the topic of this year’s conference. Speakers will share their thoughts on why they think viable and financially resilient supply chains matter. We will hear about practical methods of improving profitability and what this delivers for the supply chain as a whole, consumers and ultimately the environment.

The conference provides the opportunity to network with existing Sustainable Futures partners that include Yorkshire Farmers, Global Brands, European Partners, NGO's, Food Companies, Utilities, Banks and Supply chain associates who all have a shared interest in developing sustainable initiatives in the Food & Drink sector.

Tickets are free and the event is open to all. The conference is ideal for arable farmers and food & drink supply chain organisations and brands with an interest in increasing the environmental and financial sustainability of their business.

The Sustainable Futures Conference 2019 is kindly sponsored by our Delivery Partners.
