Union for Ethical BioTrade heads to Paris for the Biodiversity in Food Awards
The Union for Ethical BioTrade will be in Paris next week at the Food Ingredients Europe tradeshow, in order to award the winners of the Biodiversity in Food Awards.
This is the second year of the awards, which are designed to recognise the efforts of companies to promote biodiversity conservation, its sustainable use and the equitable sharing of benefits, throughout their supply chains.
Companies active in the food sector were invited to apply to the Innovation or the Leadership award. The leadership award is destined for a company that promotes sustainable practices and a respect for biodiversity in a way that will influence other businesses to adopt similar practices. The Innovation award will go to a product created in a sustainable way, with respect for the environment and surrounding biodiversity.
The Union for Ethical BioTrade will announce 2011’s winners at a ceremony on November 29, 2011. Winners will be announced here shortly after.
