It Takes Two: Tactics to Build Trust and Collaboration in Your Agricultural Supply Chain
Friday, January 18
10AM PST // 11AM MST // 12PM CST // 1PM EST
“If you’re in the food industry, and you want to work in climate, then you’re working with agriculture.” This sentiment is fast becoming an industry mantra, but when a company is not the producer, how do they engage production partners in this journey? The concept of trust is key to moving this goal forward and is explored through the lens of both buyers and producers alike in a panel discussion for January’s ROOTED session.
MegaFood and Organic India, who have focused on regenerative social and environmental relationships for many years, will represent the domestic and international purchasing perspective, respectively. John Stauner, a cranberry grower for MegaFood, will discuss his experience with MegaFood’s nascent efforts to formally incorporate regenerative practices into its supplier development toolbox.
This session will explore the specific tactics that companies and producers both have found successful- and sometimes not so successful- to build trust and create a regenerative social and environmental impact. Session time will allow for deep question and answer segment, and development of takeaway activities that attendees can aspire to achieve over the course of the next months to incorporate key lessons learned at this session.
