Food industry is an early adopter

Following major food safety scandals, stricter food safety standards were made mandatory by law. As a result, food supply chains were among the first to introduce traceability schemes on a large scale. Consumer awareness about the negative impacts of the food and agricultural sector has ever since been particularly high.

However, this sector still faces many challenges. Food companies still have limited visibility in commodities supply chains such as cocoa, palm oil, nuts, and soy which likely to be linked to issues such as child labour or deforestation. Moreover, there is another pressuring issue to be solved: Agriculture, forestry and land use account for approximately 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the agricultural sector has a crucial role to play in meeting the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

While voluntary Fairtrade standards have a long history in the food sector, recent regulations such as the UK Modern Slavery Act and French Vigilance Law make it mandatory for companies to address poor working conditions and human right violations in their supply chains.
