Sustainability conference just days away


Canadian Grocer's Commitment to Sustainability Conference is just days away and nearly sold out, but there are still a few tickets left for sale.

The conference, this Thursday, at the International Centre in Toronto, features industry leaders discussing important green issues, such as water conservation and how to reach sustainable consumers. Sustainability is the big issue of our times and few industries are being impacted as much by it as the grocery business.

Among the participants: David Smith, the vice-president of retail strategy and sustainability at Sobeys, and Steven Sage, VP of sustainability and innovation at Kruger Products.

Sage will discuss results of a round table and research done in conjunction with Canadian Grocer on the green consumer.

Smith will look at sustainability and the grocery business.

He will also sit in on a unique sustainability panel with Tim Brown, the president of Nestle Canada; John Coyne, VP and general counsel at Unilever; and Bob Chant, senior VP of corporate affairs and communication at Loblaw Companies.

Also on the agenda: a special look at one of the emerging green topics: water conservation. Anthony Watanabe, president of Innovolve Group, will explain how this issue is affecting the grocery and consumer packaged goods industry.
