The UN Sustainable Development Goals: From ambitious goals to actions for food and beverage companies

The Global Food Safety Conference organised by GFSI is going to happen in Houston from February 27th to March 2nd and we are going to discuss the UN Sustainable Development Goals there

As a company represented on the Board of the Global Food Safety Initiative, we would like to invite you to join us in Houston from February 27th to March 2nd for the Global Food Safety Conference organised by GFSI.

You can register for the event by clicking here.

We are proud to participate in this event as a Diamond sponsor as we believe that the Global Food Safety Conference is the world’s leading business-driven food safety event. We also are going to have a large stand where we welcome conference participants to meet with us. Therefore, we would like to encourage you to participate in what we reckon is the one “must attend” event of the year.

It is a unique platform for interested companies in the food, food supply chain and other strategic areas in the global food safety arena to meet with us and potentially become partners. For this edition, “Leadership for Growth” will serve to be a powerful, on-point theme to foster the conference objectives of growth, efficiency and networking for the 2017 conference.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals

Join our roundtable discussion to explore how we as businesses can respond. In a recent report for the UN Global Compact, DNV GL examined the 17 SDGs that aim to end poverty, protect our plants and ensure prosperity for all. The report explores private sector solutions for progressing on the goals and case studies of pioneering companies. 

Join us and other food and beverage companies for a practical, interactive exploration of actions you can take to address relevant SDGs, create business benefits and respond to stakeholder demands.
