#01.09.2009 APEAL officially accepted as a member of the CIAA Roundtable
In September, APEAL was officially accepted as a member of the newly established European Food SCP Round-Table. The Round-Table, initiated by the CIAA, the Confederation of the Food and Drink Industries of the EU, has been set up to promote environmental sustainability in the food supply and distribution chain. It brings together almost everyone involved in the supply and distribution of food and drink products, from farmers to agricultural traders, food and drink producers, distributors, packaging suppliers and recycling organisations. The first priority of the Roundtable will be to facilitate agreement on uniform and scientifically reliable environmental assessment methodologies for food products. APEAL will actively participate and contribute to the work of the Roundtable via a representation in the four working groups.
