Sustainable Sourcing

26 – 27 November, Manchester

Unlock the potential of your ingredients supply chain

The challenge to reduce carbon emissions across the ingredients supply chain is complex and ambitious. Despite this, it presents huge benefits for ingredients suppliers, product developers and retailers to transform ways of working for the better – from unlocking new opportunities in sustainable product development promoting positive nutrition, to delivering meaningful and measurable action against science-based targets. 

Join us at Sustainable Sourcing as we navigate through the latest guidance and policy, enlighten you with a deeper understanding of industry’s priorities in sustainable sourcing, share the latest R&D in sustainable ingredients, and empower you to unlock the potential of your entire ingredients supply chain.

2 days. 40 speakers. Over 300 attendees.

Who will you meet?

Join those at the forefront of UK sustainable sourcing from food manufacturers, retailers, foodservice, QSRs, finance & investment, regulatory and advisory bodies, ingredient companies, Food Clusters, R&D and Academia.

What’s involved?

Benefit from keynote plenary sessions, tailored break-out sessions, supplier roundtable discussions and networking opportunities designed to help you guide you through the future of sustainable sourcing.
