Wai-Chan Chan, Managing Director of The Consumer Goods Forum, said:
"Faced with the urgency of the climate crisis, alongside the cost-of-living crisis, supply chain disruption and shifting consumer needs, there has never been a more pressing time for the consumer goods industry to come together to discuss solutions and create a more sustainable, resilient industry that can ensure better business that protects people and planet.The intertwined relationship between business, society and the environment is clearer than ever. Businesses cannot thrive unless the people and places around them are prospering – and events like the Sustainable Retail Summit help ensure this ambition translates into tangible action by bringing together health and sustainability experts to share knowledge and best practices on key issues like the cost-of-living crisis. By providing such a platform, we can more effectively find the balance between long-term challenges and short-term constraints and help ensure business is taking meaningful action."

A plenary session with 18-year-old Christina Adane, Co-Chair of the Bite Back 2030 Youth Board on 'Future Consumers – The Next Generation of Food Fighters' is set to be another highlight, exploring why advocacy and the voices of young consumers are of paramount importance to drive healthier lives for all ages.
The seventh annual edition of the Sustainable Retail Summit will be held directly after The Consumer Goods Forum's brand-new Supply Chain Conference, so delegates will have the option to attend both events and to learn more about supply chain challenges from those leading global supply chains.
