This year’s World Confectionery Conference is set to be hosted in Harrogate, Yorkshire, UK, drawing together a wealth of dynamic industry speakers representing the full range of the global confectionery sector and its supply chains.
Among our speakers this year at our show on October 5 is Waleed Nasir (below), sustainability business development lead at Cargill, who offers a preview of his appearance at this year’s show, which is set to place sustainability, business resilience and innovation at its heart. (Watch the interview beneath).
With numerous challenges still remaining within cocoa supply chains, it’s clear collaborative working with communities and major stakeholders and governments in origin nations including Ghana and Ivory Coast will be critical to the future of the industry, as Cargill acknowledges in our piece.
