Transparency Talk with Trustwell

Episode 4 | June 6, 2023

What is the link between traceability and sustainability in the food industry? In this episode, Katy Jones and Dr. Alison Grantham of Grow Well Consulting discuss the critical role traceability plays in calculating certain sustainability metrics, and how food companies can rely on traceability data to determine their carbon footprint and climate impact. It’s not just climate-conscious consumers that are pushing the needle forward through food trends. Over the last 18 months, there has been a rapid evolution in the voluntary guidance and mandated regulations around corporate sustainability disclosure. This evolution, which may begin impacting corporate disclosures as soon as 2024, recommends or even requires companies to improve their traceability to comply. So how can traceability support these emerging regulations and guidance on tracking and accounting for sustainability impacts throughout the food chain? Tune in now to hear expert insights on these emerging sustainability trends in the food industry.
