Sustainability and transparency in the food industry
The impact of the EU Green Deal
However, the implementation of sustainability aspects is not possible without transparency. It therefore comes as no surprise that various food manufacturers are already committed to improving the transparency of their supply chains. One example of this is the initiative "Together for Carbon Labeling" initiative, which is dedicated to the standardized determination of the ecological footprint. However, in addition to compliance with various regulatory requirements, it has also been shown that transparency about a product can also increase consumers' interest in buying it or lead to a change in purchasing behavior. In general, there is a growing desire among consumers for more transparency and for products to be labeled with regard to their climate compatibility.
The enormous relevance of sustainability and environmental protection is evident in the various initiatives, strategies, regulations and reform packages of the EU Green Deal, but consumers are also already changing their mindset. A transparent supply chain and the provision of selected information therefore not only prepare a company for the future, but can also help to secure competitive advantages today.
Why we should start talking now
Connecting the various parties in your supply chain, as well as processing and providing the relevant information appropriately, may seem like a challenge at first glance. However, a transparent supply chain can already contribute to improving your own processes, gaining competitive advantages and achieving your business goals.
