The climate is changing, and suppliers in the botanical industry are weathering droughts, floods, rising temperatures and other deviations that impact supply chains. The finished product brands that feature these herbs can act now to enhance sustainability, improving their businesses, the communities that support their crops, the health of their consumers and the condition of the planet. In this podcast, Ann Armbrecht, director, Sustainable Herbs Program, discusses how brands can start to ease the climate conundrum with Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER. They cover:
• The Sustainable Herbs Program’s objectives, and how it helps botanical brands improve their businesses
• Why relationships with farmers are so important to brands’ business operations
• How can brands prioritize third-party certifications to boost their sustainability
