Barlows @Sustainable Food Planet Event
The Barlows of Belvoir team will be attending a University of Nottingham Enabling Innovation Project event on the 20th March 2019.
The overview of the event is noted as: "There are a myriad of trends going on among producers, retailers and consumers of food and drink, which will affect your business competitiveness and performance. This event intends to “clear the fog” and clarify the latest trends and the latest scientific advances in sustainability including packaging, valorisation of by-products and ethical sourcing. As well as current health trends including veganism, plant based additives, reducing salt and sugar, to take you to the forefront of knowledge, so that you can develop innovative products and compete strongly."
We are keen as a company to make the lowest carbon footprint where possible without detriment to the product. An example of this is that we are due to move from plastic tape on our boxes to paper based tape. We feel important to attend the Enabling Innovation events to give insight the most up to date information available from industry academics and regulators.
