Focusing on the positive effect Low Carbon farming will have on supply chain resilience

You are invited to join with Sustainable Futures partners to discuss sustainability, resilience and the importance of promoting innovation along the supply chain. Collaboration and partnership are crucial during periods of economic change, even more so with the rapid technological advancements that are forecast for the Global Food and Drink sector in coming years.

Carbon is the topic of this year’s conference. Speakers will share their thoughts on why they think improving soil health and carbon management is an opportunity for agriculture. We will hear about practical methods that can be initiated within the supply chain, benefiting partners, consumers and ultimately the environment.

The conference provides the opportunity to network with existing Sustainable Futures partners who include Yorkshire Farmers, Global Brands, European Partners, NGO’s, Food Companies, Utilities, Banks and Supply chain associates, who all have a shared interest in developing sustainable initiatives in the Food and Drink sector.

Tickets are free and the event is open to all. The conference is ideal for arable farmers and food and drink supply chain organisations and brands with an interest in increasing the environmental and financial sustainability of their business.
