November 2007 management briefing
The issue of climate change is now well and truly on the agenda, not only for food manufacturers, retailers and suppliers, but also for consumers. Becoming ‘climate-aware’ is not only imperative for the survival of the planet, but for any food business expecting a foothold in the future marketplace. There are numerous paths to this best-practice position and they are not all smooth, straightforward or cheap – they are, however, essential. This month’s briefing looks at climate change and its impact on the food industry, including global issues, organic opportunities, carbon labeling, quotes from the industry and what the industry can do going forward.
