"Ensuring long-term supply of raw materials is a key strategic issue for companies in agricultural commodity value chains. If we can't source, we can't sell - it doesn't matter how good our branding, how talented our workforce, or how big and powerful the company. Sustainable agriculture is essential for ensuring long-term sustainability of our business."
(Quote from a director of manufacturing and supply chain in a global food & beverage company)

Have you ever...

  • thought that the business opportunities of sustainable sourcing are not fully exploited in your company?
  • wished that you had the language, tools and know-how to strategically embed sustainable sourcing more fully in your organization?
