Food, Beverage & Agriculture

Food, Beverage & Agriculture

Share


The production, distribution, and sale of food and beverage products affects global sustainability issues, ranging from access to water and workers’ rights to hunger, poverty, and health and wellness.

Companies need to understand these impacts in order to devise effective strategies to promote sustainable farm-to-fork food chains and to meet the demands of customers, investors, NGOs, and government regulators.

We work with a broad range of companies that span the food, beverage and agriculture value chain —including growers, input providers, manufacturers, retailers, and restaurants – to integrate corporate responsibility into core business strategies. BSR has applied its approach to materiality and integration, stakeholder relations, and supply chain management throughout the industry to produce tangible results.
