Sustainability evolves with Vitafoods as we grow and progress as a community. As we work together to increase our positive environmental, social and economic contribution, we have the opportunity to support the nutraceutical industry in achieving its own sustainability goals through enabling the right connections and access to the knowledge they need to help solve the big challenges in the sector.
Implementing Health & Safety measures to ensure your safety if you decide to join us in-person whilst providing an accessible virtual platform to stay connected, share knowledge and do business.
We've joined forces with our purposeful partner, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), to support their vision of a world without malnutrition. Help us raise funds to support tea plantation workers and their families during this period of this crisis.
Your contribution can help ensure nutrition security for these families.
The role we play within the industry and the growing interest in sustainability from our visitors and exhibitors, as well as to our market, motivate us to continually grow our sustainable efforts. In 2018, we started:
In 2019, Vitafoods Europe achieved the prestigious ISO 20121 Sustainability Certificate and the Informa Markets Award Excellence in Sustainability.
Throughout the pandemic, we continued to serve our community with the launch of a series of digital event solutions that inspired and enabled sustainable development through enhanced connection opportunities and access to content covering key topic areas: Vitafoods Digital Week, Vitafoods Virtual Expo, Vitafoods Asia Digital Week and more recently Vitafoods Insights Virtual Expo.
Expert presentations focused on the sustainable recovery of the health & nutrition industry, innovation in the post-COVID world, sustainable sourcing, racial injustice and climate change, among others.
With a vision to bring 'more heath to more people' and our commitment to help foster meaningful connections, we are partnered with The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), working closely with their SUN Business Network (SBN). GAIN is driven by a vision of a world without malnutrition, in which all people have access to and consume nutritious and safe food. Their mission is to advance nutrition outcomes by improving the consumption of nutritious and safe food for all people, especially the most vulnerable to malnutrition.
Laurène Aubert, nutrition growth lead and global partnerships manager at GAIN and the SBN, presented Sustainable CPGs: Maintaining commitments & protecting profits at Vitafoods Virtual Expo, the first of many collaborations.
While virtual events provided access to more people regardless of their location, digital accessibility needed to be a consideration. All our pre-recorded sessions and videos display English subtitles to enhance inclusiveness and accessibility, to provide new audiences with knowledge and networking opportunities.
Moving forward, we will keep adapting and improving our sustainability commitment. Earlier this year, we officially became one of the 25 SBN (SUN (Scaling Up Nutrition) Business Network global members as a part of the world’s leading private sector focused nutrition initiative. By joining SBN, we hope to continue contributing to a collective voice and community for nutrition, receive support to foster workshop nutrition commitments and develop a common advocacy agenda with other businesses to influence key global processes and events.
