Sustainability is high on the agenda for the food industry, but many companies are not actively monitoring or measuring the sustainability of the ingredients and products they source. These findings come from a new report, Driving Sustainability, from LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming).
The report, which surveyed nearly 1,000 representatives from across the food industry, showed that while 82 % of respondents agree sustainability is very important to their company, one in five (19 %) do not monitor the sustainability of food products they source.
The report was launched at the International Food and Drink Event 2013 where there was a panel discussion on the subject of measuring sustainability. The videos are available to view here. You can download the report here.
