Sustainable Commitment at Vitafoods Virtual Expo

 

Our mission to shape the food industry for optimal health, through science and innovation transcends beyond our physical events. Vitafoods Virtual Expo was created very much in line with our commitment to sustainability and what it represents:

  • Continued support to the industry to drive sustainable development
  • Running events in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner
  • Leverage our platform to empower our community

Vitafoods Virtual Expo was conceived to keep the global nutraceuticals community connected, inspired and energised. Using a virtual platform, we hope to offer an interactive experience while keeping everyone safe during this challenging time. 

We will continue to work towards achieving zero carbon and zero waste and driving the sustainability agenda at Vitafoods Asia 2020 and Vitafoods Europe 2021

Sustainable Recovery

Challenging times call for great innovation. As restrictions start to ease in many countries and we move into a phase of economic recovery, Vitafoods encourages companies to put sustainability at the top of their agendas. 

Opportunities to accelerate market growth are hand-in-hand with social and environmental sustainability. Leading operations efficiency is one of the ways in which businesses can be cost-effective and contribute to a faster market recovery whilst building consumer loyalty.

One of the biggest challenges a company face when embracing sustainability is finding the right information and resources. In an effort to empower our community, we have partnered with Informa Health & Nutrition’s portfolio of New Hope Network, Natural Products Insider, Food & Beverage Insider to produce the Sustainable Packaging Toolkit, in collaboration with RCD Packaging.

Look out for other consumer trends and market updates at Vitafoods Virtual Expo & Summit, as well as in Vitafoods Insights. 

Community Wellbeing

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can make a huge difference in your wellbeing, physical and mental performance, whether you are at work, visiting an in-person or a digital event.

Aiming to provide our visitors with a healthy start to their day, our annual Community Breakfast would usually provide wholesome foods and drinks at Vitafoods Europe and Vitafoods Asia. Unlike in-person events, virtual events may not be physically demanding as such, but it can be mentally challenging. As you join us for Vitafoods Virtual Expo, you will receive suggestions on how you can make healthier food and wellbeing choices to ensure your motivation and energy levels remain at an all-time high throughout the event.
