Major food players sign 'green' agreement

Danisco, Bunge, Nestlé, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and Tyson Foods have joined a working group that aims to "enable companies and stakeholders to better measure and communicate sustainability progress.

The working group has been established by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), a body that promotes corporate environmental sustainability. The group is set to meet in Brazil in early 2008 to develop guidelines.

Meaningful information
The group says consumers are demanding to be provided with meaningful information about how foods and beverages are produced, and producers need to respond to those demands.

"This cannot be reduced to a simplistic 'carbon label,' but requires a sound understanding of all significant sustainability aspects, including water, nutrition, and health and wellness as a basis to create shared value for society," said Nestlé's safety, health and environment vice president Claus Conzelmann.
