Agricultural commodity suppy security relies on thriving farming communities

Sustainable rural communities are critical to the sustained success of global agri-businesses. After all, smallholder farming accounts for the largest share of food production worldwide. However, these farmers and their local communities lack opportunities to improve their income, food security and livelihoods. To drive resilience and safeguard supply, business must work to deliver positive social outcomes for rural communities.

Leading discussion on what business can do to ensure sustainable agricultural communities, focusing in particular on palm oil supply chains, are:

  • Anita Neville, vice president of corporate communications and sustainability relations, Golden Agri-Resources
  • Rashyid Anwarudin, principal sustainability officer, Sime Darby
  • Ruth Thomas, director, strategy and operations, Global Agribusiness Alliance

Introduced and moderated by Ian Welsh, Innovation Forum

We’ll be covering some of the themes touched on in the webinar, along with a host of other related issues at our upcoming Sustainable Landscapes Conference (6th-7th November, London).

Join experts from GAR, Mars, Unilever, Greenpeace, Coca-Cola, L'Oréal, H&M and many more. This two-day conference will tackle the biggest issues faced by business in creating a net positive impact and ensuring sustainable and resilient agricultural supply chains. It will equip delegates with the guidance and expertise to drive better commodity sourcing and deliver sustainable landscapes at scale.
