Today’s consumers don’t just want a great-tasting product, and a short, simple ingredient list. They also now care about where their food comes from, how ethical the company is, what their food is packaged in, and how products affect the planet in terms of carbon footprint.
The hour-long live webinar will look at how dairy companies can create products that are more environmentally friendly, including the packaging. We look at what some companies are doing – and what more they can do – to help ensure sustainability is at the forefront of more environmentally-friendly dairy products. This also includes how producers can communicate with consumers on their efforts in this increasingly important area.
Registration is free, and participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the guests, although time constraints mean not all will be able to be answered. The webinar will go live at 15:00CET, 2pm in the UK and 9am on the east coast of the US.
There will be three panellists taking part in the event, which is sponsored by Amcor.
The webinar will also be available to download after it airs from DairyReporter.com.
