Sustainable sourcing guide: Five steps towards managing supply chain risk
27 December 2012
The global food system is coming under increasing pressure from the impacts of climate change, population increase, a growing demand for limited resources and changing diets.
Consumers are also increasingly seeking reassurance that businesses are managing their supply chains sustainably.
This has led to a growing realisation across food and drink companies that building a secure and sustainable supply chain makes good business sense and has the potential to bring with it a number of corporate social responsibility benefits.
The FDF has developed a straightforward guide which sets out a step-by-step process to help food and drink manufacturing businesses of all sizes to get started on this journey. It aims to help identify, prioritise and manage upstream supply chain risks as part of a more strategic approach towards supply chain sustainability.
