Trace Talks #2: Certification and beyond
About Trace Talks #2
It's not an easy topic, yet a very relevant one: the future of certifications.
If you consider yourself a concious consumer, if you are in any way involved in sustainability in agri-food, changes are certifiers have made their mark on you. In the past decades, it were the Fairtrade's and Rainforest Alliance's of this world that paved the way towards a more sustainable agri-food sector, gently waking up a generation of conscious consumers along the way.
But are certifications reaching the limits of their current way of working? How do they relate to upcoming smart technologies, that enable a true uncluttering of food supply chains?
In this edition of Trace Talks, we will discuss the past, present and - especially - the future of certification. Moreover, we will argue how new technologies are heralding a new era of CSR. The future of food is transparent!
