Consumer Goods Forum Sustainable Retail Summit Kicks Off In Paris

The latest addition to the Consumer Goods Forum network of events, the summit welcomes innovators and thought leaders from some of the world's biggest retailers and suppliers, to discuss three central themes – food waste, forced labour, and health and wellness – as well as analyse how their businesses are adapting to the demands of a more environmentally conscious consumer base.
