News, Events & Resources
On World Food Safety Day (June 7), Frost & Sullivan discusses why continuous focus on food safety is important to prevent food wastage and outbreaks of food-borne illnesses
Thank you to Globuc for hosting us so well at its GO Circular conference earlier this month in Antwerp, Belgium. It was a fantastic event and good to see so much happening to help create a circular economy for plastic.
My reflections on the event cover several themes.
Global food supplies have experienced a challenging couple of years. First in 2021, due to supply constraints in fundamental fertilizer-producing countries like China, India, the US, Canada, and Russia; now, we need to add the war in Ukraine to the analysis. This issue involves us all, because supply chains are truly global, and one country’s trade problem becomes a problem for the rest of the world.
