Consumer Goods Forum Sustainable Retail Summit Heads To Montréal
The Consumer Goods Forum is bringing its Sustainable Retail Summit to Montréal, Canada, from 2-3 October 2017.
This is the second year of the summit, which held its inaugural event in Paris last year, with two days of talks and workshops on socially and environmentally sustainable business solutions.
This year's event will focus on industry challenges such as forced labour, food waste, and consumer health and wellbeing, and will be opened by McCain president and CEO Dirk Van de Put.
The Sustainable Retail Summit will feature special presentations and panel discussions to tackle key trends impacting the FMCG industry.
International companies and retailers such as Ahold Delhaize, Campbell Soup, Danone, Kellog's, Marks & Spencer, Metro, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Tesco, The Coca-Cola Company, Unilever and Walmart will be present.
There will also be representatives from government and public sectors, such as the US Chamber of Commerce, the PAHO Foundation, the World Resources Institute, and the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP).
McCain Foods' Dirk Van de Put described the Sustainable Retail Summit as "the perfect platform to bring together a global industry" and address topics impacting consumer goods companies.
“For many companies, it's harder than ever to know how to implement strategies and actions that will meet changing consumer demands and your long-term business goals," he said.
"Attendees of the Sustainable Retail Summit should come away from Montréal with concrete examples of how they can apply the changes necessary within their own companies. The Sustainable Retail Summit also provides us the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals who want to see change for the better.”
