How the sustainability cluster can help your business

We’ve all felt the effects of climate breakdown through our food. Whether it’s our farmers experiencing abnormal weather conditions, us the industry-professionals watching food costs rise, or our customers seeing food shortages on supermarket shelves.

In a world increasingly attuned to the environmental needs of the planet, it is becoming a prerequisite for food and drink manufacturers to be producing their goods with sustainability at the forefront of their thinking.

Consumers now expect their food and drink to be sustainably sourced and delivered, relying on manufacturers to ensure this happens.
