Consumer Goods Forum Sustainable Retail Summit: The Best Tweets From Day 1

The Consumer Goods Forum Sustainable Retail Summit kicked off in Paris today (27 October) and continues until tomorrow.

The event played host to plenty of lively debate on the issues of sustainability, forced labour and health and wellness, with great interaction between attendees and speakers.

Here are some of the top tweets from Day One:

Danone chief executive Emmanuel Faber summed up what suppliers and retailers need to do to combat food waste in an insightful presentation.


Mondelez International's Hubert Weber calls for greater partnerships in order to tackle the issue of forced labour in the food sector.


Appreciating the 'world behind a brand' is part of the overall sustainability message.


An interesting take on whether consumers would be willing to pay more, if they knew a product's supply chain was free of forced labour?



Carrefour's Bertrand Swiderski brought the house down with his analysis of sustainable bananas.

A rare sight - rivals Dave Lewis of Tesco and Mike Coupe of Sainsbury's share the stage.

Putting in place the right measurement tools is key to ensuring food waste can be tackled at retail level.

Spelling out the size of the forced labour issue - even in developed countries.

Setting out an agenda we can all believe in.

Roll on day two!
