  • Sustainability Leadership: an operator that leads in various aspects of sustainability.

The awards are open to all types of operators in the food industry, such as food & beverage brands, ingredient firms, packaging companies, industry associations, and related organisations who are helping encourage sustainability in the food industry.

The closing date for entries is 1st May, the finalists will be notified by 15th May, and the eventual winners at a dedicated awards reception on 11th June in Amsterdam.
