Τhis year's MAPP conference, that is co-organized with Food and Bio Cluster Denmark and AgroFood Park, will shed light on the ongoing debate around sustainable food labeling. By highlighting the necessary steps to take, the conference aims to provide insight on how to effectively introduce sustainable food labels.
The topic of sustainable food labelling has been the subject of much debate in Denmark and throughout the EU. On the one hand, implementing (a)sustainability label(s) for food products will aid consumers in making informed and environmentally friendly choices, improve transparency, and promote sustainable farming practices. Additionally, sustainable labelling may lead to a reduction in the overall environmental impact of the food industry. On the other hand, solely relying on labels may not be enough to bring about significant change in the food system. For example, labels may not provide enough information, and the question is whether it needs a comparison between different food groups or within a single product category. So, are sustainable food labels a way to go to change food choices and, if so, what will ensure a positive environmental and economic impact?
The conference is targeted to industry professionals within the food and packaging sector, policy stakeholders, and academics.
Agenda will follow soon.
