Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Industry Global Sustainability Symposium
Friday 11th November at 5am New Zealand time
United Fresh New Zealand Incorporated is a member of IFPS, the International Federation for Produce Standards. IFPS already works on our behalf at a global level on product identification, food safety, traceability and information management standards.
With the growing importance of sustainability in all aspects of our industry value chains, and the almost inevitable emergence of increased numbers and intensity of rules, regulations, and standards, the IFPS Board of Directors has determined that our industry should consider how we can take a more proactive position in the sustainability space. We need to ensure that the requirements of a more structured sustainability regulatory framework, and supply chain reporting requirements, take the realities of our fresh produce value chains into consideration and that what we are being asked to do is feasible and adds value.
The IFPS Board would, therefore, like to invite you to attend a virtual global sustainability symposium on 10 November, 11am to 2:30pm Eastern Standard Time (EST), this is Friday 11th November at 5am New Zealand time.
