The food and beverage supply chain is cleaning up to better provide regenerative, nourishing, accessible and tasty options to consumers across the globe. But this is no easy task with food brands needing to examine their practices and understand how their actions affect environments and workers in the supply chain. The Esca Bona Pavilion at SupplySide West 2018 engaged companies working to create a good food system that is regenerative, nourishing and accessible to all. Jenna Blumenfeld, senior food editor, New Hope Network, was the emcee at the Esca Bona Pavilion, and she gives her top takeaways from the show in this podcast with Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER. They cover:

  • The help smaller start-up food and beverage brands are getting from Family Farmed from CEO Jim Slama

  • The growing number of organic products and the current issues organic farmers face at outlined by Brise Tencer, Organic Farming Research Foundation

  • How Daabon is producing sustainable palm oil and raising the bar in the palm oil industry.
