The Consumer Goods Forum’s Sustainable Retail Summit Heads to Lisbon

The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) will be hosting its annual Sustainable Retail Summit in Lisbon, Portugal on 25th-26th October 2018. The two-day event, now in its third year, has quickly become an influential addition to the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) calendar for those organisations looking to drive positive change and support sustainable business practices. The event is open to both members and non-members of The Consumer Goods Forum and will take place at the Dom Pedro Lisboa.

Topics on the agenda include plastic waste, migrant labour, consumer health, food waste and transparency.
