Focal themes of this new edition are food security &amp; waste, marketing best-practices and new technologies. A third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted, however how can supply chains become more efficient? What is the role of distribution &amp; logistics and packaging? What can be done at production and retail level?</p> <p> Topics on the&nbsp;summit agenda&nbsp;includemeasuring environmental footprints, sustainable sourcing, innovating from waste, adding social value to foods, advances in mobile communications, e-tailing potential, packaging innovations, and food authentication tools. As in previous editions, case studies will be given of companies at the cutting edge of sustainability initiatives.</p> <p> Organised by Organic Monitor, the summit will bring together key stake-holders in the food industry and debate these major issues in a high-level forum.</p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://supermarketnews.com/sustainable-foods-summit" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://supermarketnews.com/sustainable-foods-summit#comments California Organics sustainability 2013 37.791778 -122.407378 Wed, 14 Nov 2012 16:32:00 +0000 394401 at http://supermarketnews.com IFPAC: Food Quality, Safety & Analysis http://supermarketnews.com/ifpac-food-quality-safety-analysis <div class="node-body event-body">The IFPAC Food Symposium is an important component of the IFPAC Annual Conference.

The goal at this showcase is to keep the networking high and the competition for editors&#39; attention low - that&#39;s why we only allow no more than 40 brands to participate in any given Showcase.<br /> <br /> A presence at an Editor Showcase helps you build key relationships faster, smarter and with less cost than a cluttered trade show exhibit, traveling back and forth for deskside briefings, and mailing costly &quot;goodies&quot; to editors with no guarantee of them ever being opened. And each Editor Showcase is designed to be intimate, so you get the most face time as possible.</span></p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://supermarketnews.com/beauty-and-lifestyle-showcase" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://supermarketnews.com/beauty-and-lifestyle-showcase#comments New York 2013 40.758408 -73.985517 Wed, 20 Mar 2013 15:23:00 +0000 407931 at http://supermarketnews.com American Bakers Association Convention http://supermarketnews.com/american-bakers-association-convention-0 <div class="node-body event-body">Be sure to add this year's ABA Convention to your calendar, April 20-24, 2013!

Compared to trade shows that attract thousands of people, the Summit offers a much more intimate environment for networking, hosting approximately 450 attendees.<br /> <br /> AWMA Summit - The educational program of the AWMA Summit on Tuesday, September 10, as always, will cover topics that affect all convenience distributors. Topics at past Summits have included tobacco industry analysis, distributor profitability, looks at the U.S. economy and elections, candy sales &amp; profits, foodservice trends, trends in convenience stores, boosting distributor profits and how other distribution companies survive, plus much more.&nbsp; This year&rsquo;s Summit program is still in the works and will be available soon.&nbsp; Check AWMA&rsquo;s website for regular updates.<br /> <br /> AWMA Business Exchange &ndash; One-on-one meetings between distributors and manufacturers/suppliers.&nbsp; Once again, the AWMA Business Exchange (ABX) will follow the AWMA Summit.&nbsp; AWMA introduced the ABX meetings at the 2004 AWMA Summit &amp; Business Exchange in New Orleans.&nbsp; Both distributors and manufacturer/suppliers alike appreciate the opportunity to meet with top decision-makers in each others companies. The meetings are strategic and about moving the business forward &ndash; very different than your typical trade show.&nbsp; Every year the program has grown to include more participants.&nbsp; Manufacturers/suppliers who have participated each year said the cost of their meeting room was well worth it when they considered the number of productive meetings held with their distributor customers.&nbsp; And distributors come back year after year to participate in one of their favorite events.&nbsp; Check AWMA&rsquo;s website for regular updates.</p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://supermarketnews.com/2013-awma-summit-business-exchange" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://supermarketnews.com/2013-awma-summit-business-exchange#comments 2013 33.494170 -111.926052 Tue, 29 Jan 2013 16:14:00 +0000 401851 at http://supermarketnews.com D2 Cincinnati http://supermarketnews.com/d2-cincinnati <div class="node-body event-body"><p>Organized by customer science experts dunnhumbyUSA and American Advertising Federation (AAF) Cincinnati, D2 Cincinnati is the first digital marketing conference focusing specifically on customer centricity, the concept of putting an organization’s customers at the center of their business and marketing decisions.
