Sustainability Zone

Leading food and drink figures joined forces with Welsh Government earlier this year to outline a future strategic vision for industry. 

Looking at areas such as growth and productivity, environmental impact, fair work and raising standards throughout, by working together it is hoped that government and industry can create one of the most environmentally and socially responsible supply chains in the world.
