Blog: Dean BestFood and the environment: a briefing

Dean Best | 28 October 2010

I want to take a break from the mountain of third-quarter results published today (28 October) to point you towards just-food's latest management briefing - just one of the benefits of subscribing to our site.

Our four-part How to green your supply chain looks at how the food industry is trying to mitigate its impact on the environment.

The briefing analyses how suppliers and food retailers are working together to build the environment into the buying process.

UK food producer Premier Foods plc, retailer Sainsbury's and Belgium-based grocer Delhaize are highlighted in their moves to include high-level executive involvement into their policies on sustainability.

The briefing also looks at the involvement of other stakeholders from government and unions and from farming groups to aid charities, citing prominent multi-stakeholder initiatives such as the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) and the Marine Stewardship Council.

Part three discusses the challenges in developing labels that accurately measure a foodstuff's impact on the environment, while part four assesses how industry can measure any advances it is making.
