London, UK - November 13, 2019 - BM TRADA to host roundtable discussion on sustainable supply chains at Food Matters Live

Leading international certification organization, BM TRADA, part of the Element Group, will be hosting a roundtable discussion on the sustainable supply chain at Food Matters Live on Tuesday 19 November.

Andy Green, Business Development Director at BM TRADA, will lead the discussion on identifying key risks, understanding appropriate mitigation, and communicating with key stakeholders.

Andy is an expert in sustainability for the food and feed industries. He has many years of experience advising FMCG stakeholders on managing a more sustainable supply chain to the benefit of those who work in, buy from, or are impacted by the trade in raw materials.

Rob Veitch, EVP Fire and Building Products at Element, said: “Supply Chain sustainability is a critical issue for businesses and customers. This roundtable will lead delegates through the challenges facing the supply chain and strategies for implementing sustainable changes.

“Andy Green is the ideal person to lead this discussion as he has expertise working with the palm oil industry to help develop and grow the RSPO sustainable palm oil certification standards, and he has served on several Standing Committees and Working Groups. In addition, he has been closely involved with the certification of responsible soy, cocoa and coffee, and few people have the in-depth knowledge he does on the practicalities of these processes.”

Food Matters Live takes place 19–20 November 2019 at ExCeL, London and will bring together the brightest innovators in food and drink. Featuring a curated exhibition with hundreds of exhibitors and speakers, thousands of visitors from across the global food and drink industry will have the opportunity to create cross-sector connections.
