Sustainability sells. Recent research shows that sustainably-marketed products grew over 7 times faster than conventionally-marketed products.  Grocery retailers are leaning in, with 85% highlighting sustainable attributes at point of sale. At the same time, CPG brands are communicating sustainable benefits on-package, striving for language both technically precise and relatable to consumers.

The Big Food Redesign: Making Nature-Positive the Norm
What if food could build biodiversity and tackle climate change? Rather than bending nature to produce food, food can be designed for nature to thrive. By rethinking how ingredients are used and produced, food businesses can provide choices that are better for customers, better for farmers, and better for the environment. Circular design for food uses the principles of the circular economy and applies them across all dimensions of food design, from product concept, through ingredient selection and sourcing, to packaging. This session will describe how circular design for food – fundamentally redesigning product portfolios to use all the diverse food outputs of a nature-positive food system – offers significantly greater benefits than using the same ingredients as today, and requires sourcing them better through regenerative production.
