Responsible sourcing makes sense from a business and social impact perspective. Many companies support farmers in their supply chains to strengthen the quality, reliability and sustainability of critical supplies. Sustainable supply chains can also result in increased productivity for farmers and the improved livelihoods of communities living in poverty. This discussion will explore how businesses are forging partnerships with others to make the sourcing of food and agriculture sustainable, inclusive and a force for good.
