Just as sustainability encompasses complete life cycles, food and beverage manufacturers are taking sustainability into account across the “life” of their product.

And with 82% of shoppers saying they want a consumer brand’s values to align with their own, catering to this interest in sustainability is essential for developers in this space. Let’s find out how your brand can capitalize on these good-for-the-palate and better-for-the-planet development opportunities.
