Rethinking ways to fast-track sustainable, healthy foods
Game-changing ideas for dairy’s role in a sustainable food system and opportunities to fast-track the industry’s sustainability emerged at the Dairy Sustainability Consultative Forum this month.
Reusing end-of-life plastic, abating greenhouse gases and improving diets were among the ideas shared by a record turnout of representatives from the dairy value chain and experts in sustainable food.
The forum, which was a registered independent dialogue ahead of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021 – also showcased the Australian Dairy Industry Sustainability Report 2020. The report outlines progress towards the industry’s 2030 Goals (see story below) and is dairy’s eighth sustainability report.
Outputs from the forum will inform a review of the commitments, goals, targets and indicators in the Australian Dairy Industry Sustainability Framework – the first of its kind in agriculture worldwide
