Speciality & Fine Food Fair, the trade event for fine food and drink producers, has added a dedicated Sustainability Zone to its September 2021 trade show.
The Sustainability Zone will provide a platform for producers who can demonstrate a substantial commitment to operating in a sustainable way, whether through the sourcing of ingredients, the production and packaging of the product, or the internal processes of the business.
Producers looking to join the Sustainability Zone will have to complete an application process created in partnership with experts in sustainable business practices.
Event manager Philippa Christer said: "We've been thrilled by the enthusiasm and buy-in we're already seeing from our producers. The past year has shone a light on environmental sustainability for a lot of consumers as topics such as food waste, ethical products and production and shopping local have been making headlines.
"This new addition to the fair will give producers a chance to demonstrate their sustainability credentials in a live environment, while offering buyers the opportunity to explore the increasing diversity and innovation in this area of the market. Speciality & Fine Food Fair has always been about the excitement of discovery and now we're able to connect buyers directly with truly inspiring sustainable brands.
"We've worked closely with our communities to ensure that the Sustainability Zone adds genuine value to the fair, and we'd encourage anyone interested in learning more to get in touch ASAP as places are limited and demand is high"
The Speciality & Fine Food Fair will take place on 6-7 September at Olympia London.
