Participants at the North American Sustainable Foods Summit in San Francisco called for greater transparency and accountability in food companies’ sustainability efforts, event organizer Organic Monitor said.

The two-day summit took place from January 18-19, focusing on pioneering sustainability initiatives, ethical sourcing, sustainable ingredients, organic plus strategies, and marketing and distribution innovations, bringing together food industry representatives involved in sustainability initiatives.

“Some argue that international supply chains are making consumers disconnected from agriculture and food production methods, with eco-labels able to strengthen consumer confidence,” Organic Monitor said.
