‘As one of the Founding Partners of SIFAV we’re incredibly proud of the results, says Stefanie Vermaessen, Sustainble Business Mananger at Nature’s Pride and Chairwoman of the SIFAV Steering Committee. ‘SIFAV has grown to now roughly represent 25% of total fruit and vegetables imports in Europe. It is very significant that such a big part of the market works together on one shared sustainability agenda. SIFAV has achieved this. It has accelerated sustainability throughout the entire chain, created insights and capacity, as well as monitoring and risk management mechanisms. We’re incredibly proud to have been a dedicated partner of this process, through participation in many pilots and projects (for example in Guatemala, Chile, and Peru), numerous working sessions, and our work in the Steering Committee. A bright future lays ahead of us with new members joining and an ambitious agenda for 2025.’
