Future in Food 2016

23rd of November, Croke Park

Today, sustainability is the driving force behind many companies. Understanding that this is a increasingly important factor when choosing suppliers and companies to do business with has never been more of a key business strategy. Sustainability within the food and drinks processing and manufacturing sector has never been more important! For many years larger organisations have been realising the fact that environmental policies and energy efficiencies within processing is directly related to the bottom line! Reducing energy costs, carbon footprint and waste during the process of food stuffs can have a significant impact on the profitability of a facility. Additionally, as food manufacturers and their clients supply chains becomes more and more entwined they find themselves under increased pressure to reduce their carbon footprint. Future in Food Ireland brings together like-minded management from Ireland’s food & drinks processing industry to openly discuss the important issue of sustainability, waste management, water treatment and energy efficiency.

Join over 300 sustainability professionals working within the Irish food processing industry and hear from National & International organisations on how they have achieved high levels of energy, waste and water management.
