CAN FOOD BE BOTH HEALTHY AND TRULY SUSTAINABLE?
Date & Time: Friday, October 22, 7-7:30 pm East Africa Time, (4 pm GMT, 1 pm Chile Daylight Time)
With Priyanka Srinivas
Following the pandemic, one in five are making healthier choices to support their own wellbeing, and more than half are eating fewer animal products. Yet as the demand for both sustainably produced and healthy foods grows, many companies offering such options still find themselves offsetting the positive carbon benefits of cutting animals out of the loop by packaging their products in plastic or using synthetic additives. Health without sustainability isn’t enough, but how can food companies achieve both?
Join us to learn from Priyanka Srinivas about her solution, The Live Green Co, and how ‘360-degree green’ practices are possible.
