Food and drink organisations are operating in a fast-moving sector. Governments are pulling organisations to comply with ambitious targets and strategies. Customers are pushing your teams to be more sustainable and responsible. Businesses can make a significant and positive impact simply by re-evaluating how they work with their supply chains.

This webinar will outline how you can take practical steps to adopt circular procurement practices in your operations. This will lead to greater supply chain resilience, protection from changing legislation (and fluctuating costs), reduced environmental impacts and improved social benefits.
