Today’s supply chain is facing global challenges with buyers and consumers seeking more transparency. Sustainability initiatives are moving forward at a rapid pace and it has become clear that sustainable nutrition is not only a key challenge for the nutrition space but has turned into a mega trend with a wealth of opportunities to re-position brands, engage with consumers and build loyalty through communicating shared values.
