Evolving buyer-grower supply chain relationships, and Fairtrade America on cocoa

This week: Some early pointers from Innovation Forum’s new smallholder farmer research group – involving Clinton Foundation, COLEACP, CottonConnect, GIZ, Golden Agri-Resources and Nestlé – from Dr Peter Stanbury. And, another chance to hear from Fairtrade America’s Stephanie Westhelle about working to ensure long-term sustainability in the west African cocoa sector.

Plus: Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Danone, Nestlé and others underline commitment to PET bottle deposit return schemes; new global rubber sector sustainability commitments; and, UK Modern Slavery Act tightens reporting requirements, with civil sanctions to come, in the news digest.
