Driving Sustainability through Collaboration Connecting Key Stakeholders Responsible for Delivering a Sustainable Food & Beverage Industry


MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM Birmingham Dec 2nd 2015

Driving Sustainability through Collaboration Firstly, thanks to everyone that made last year’s event such a success. Over 500 delegates from the food and beverage manufacturing, retail, foodservice and agriculture industry across the UK and abroad attended the inaugural Sustainable Food & Beverage Manufacturing Conference & Exhibition, which was held at the MotorCycle Museum, Birmingham . The speakers at the Conference were carefully selected from senior management within the food and drink industry, both at home and abroad, who had a successful track record of delivering quantifiable eco results in sustainable food and beverage manufacturing and throughout the supply chain. The audience were treated to a day of compelling presentations and discussions with leading companies such Nestle, Mondelez, ABP Food Group, William Jackson Food Group, First Milk, Tesco, Asda etc. The 2015 event is being held once again in the Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham. Due to the exceptional response to the 2014 event and the demand for an annual forum to discuss sustainability issues through the entire food chain, it was decided to expand the event with so that stakeholders from the entire food chain including food and beverage manufactures, retailers, food service companies, agriculture producers are able to share their knowledge on how to create a sustainable food and beverage industry.

Key Event Topics • Energy Efficiency • Water Use Reduction • Sustainable Packaging • Sustainable  Logistics & Supply Chain • Sustainable Energy • Sustainable Ingredients • Waste Reduction • Environmental Stewardship • Recycling • Food Waste • Lifecycle Engineering

This event will bring together key stakeholders and regulatory bodies from food and beverage manufacturers, food retailers, food service companies, the agriculture industry, ingredient manufacturers, plus key suppliers of energy, water, engineering, packaging, supply chain, logistics, emissions reduction and waste to energy technology and services that have been instrumental in creating a sustainable food and beverage business. Finally I would like to personally thank all of the speakers, sponsors and exhibitors who have contributed to making this conference possible. Without their support it would not be possible to stage such a comprehensive event. If you are interested in presenting, sponsoring or exhibiting next year please do not hesitate to contact me. I hope you have a very enjoyable day. Regards

Predominately Andy focuses on the food, home and personal care industries and has been instrumental in supporting the uptake of certified sustainable palm oil. Andy was central to

Speakers the development of BM TRADA’s Responsibly Sourced Scheme for Soy, Cocoa and Sugar and is passionate about finding an effective route to demonstrate sustainability on a range of products, whilst limiting the increase in auditing requirements. With an increasing demand for sustainability and traceability a number of IT platforms are developing to support these. These range from online claims platforms, trading platforms and ‘eye’ in the sky type mapping systems that plot forest cover loss and land use changes in agriculture. It is possible to develop a common approach to help supplement or in some cases replace the need for physical auditing. How can we meet the need for transparency and traceability whilst avoiding huge increases in costs and bureaucracy or should the need for traceability be questioned in the first place? Having studied Environment and Development Andy serves on the RSPO Communications and Claims Standing Committee and acted as technical facilitator for the RSPO during the supply chain certification standards review and Communications and Claims rules review. Andy is committed to the aims of sustainability standards, the benefits of independent certification and the need to ensure a harmonised approach to audit requirements. There is some misunderstanding regarding the accuracy and appropriate applications of both nutrition calculations and laboratory analysis. This presentation will explain how the strengths & weaknesses of both can be used to the advantage of the food manufacturer in order to ensure the greatest benefit and accuracy.

Adrian Rhodes Technical Director Byworth Boilers The MCPD is a proposed piece of environmental legislation intended to fill the gap between the Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EU (the IED) and the “Eco Design” Directive 2009/125/EC. If it is passed into law it will apply to combustion plant rated between 1 MW and 50 MW thermal input. The proposed Directive places limits on the concentration levels of sulphur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), and particulates in exhaust gases from affected plant. These Emissions Limit Values (ELV’s) vary according to the type of plant and the fuel used but the general aim is to reduce the background levels of these harmful substances. Furthermore it will be necessary to monitor (but not limit) carbon monoxide (CO).
