Sustainable business practices within the fresh produce industry will be the focus of The Packer’s Sustainable Produce Summit.

The virtual event, Sept. 22-24, is presented by The Packer and Farm Journal’s Trust In Food, in partnership with Apeel Sciences. Registration and agenda information is at www.sustainableproducesummit.com.

The program offers exclusive content centered on daily themes of environmental practices, social sustainability and consumer insights. 
“We believe that true sustainability can only be reached as a community — it takes all of us,” said Matt Morgan, executive vice president of produce for Farm Journal. “To advance that goal, we’re excited to deliver this new virtual event, which will bring together top thought leaders and change-makers in this space, while also meeting the demands of companies and customers, throughout the supply chain, who are asking for more guidance and collaboration around sustainable business practices.”

The schedule features speakers, interactive breakout sessions and sustainability case studies.

The event will provide educational opportunities for attendees and exhibitors with online networking features available throughout the event. 

A highlight will be the presentation of data and analysis from a recent study commissioned by The Packer and Trust In Food that polled growers, retailers and consumers about their perspectives and practices related to sustainability.

“In partnership with leaders across the supply chain, we are realizing the environmental, social and business benefits of applying nature’s solutions to solve food waste,” said Jason De Turris, vice president of brand marketing at Apeel. “We’re excited to partner with The Packer and Trust In Food to educate the growing community of sustainability innovators. The more we understand about how we use natural resources, the more power we will have in making the right decisions for our food system and beyond.”
