Sheffield Sustainability Network – Sustainability in Business: Food
Join us for Sheffield Sustainability Network’s breakfast event on the food industry at 8:30am on Tuesday 9th March. This event will provide an overview of practical ways for businesses and individuals to tackle sustainability issues along the food supply chain thanks to a panel of speakers from the Sheffield not-for-profit and retail sectors. Gareth Roberts (Sheffood & Regather), Nicola Newman (Zeds Wholefoods) and Mathew Reynolds (Bare Alternative) will share their experience of embedding sustainability in their businesses. The event will end with an opportunity for questions and discussion.
