FCA 2021 Sustainable Food Leadership Forum


Sustainability priorities are a key strategic and business imperative for food and hospitality franchises, which comprise around 40% of Australian franchising.

And with the launch of the Federal Government’s National Plastics Plan setting deadlines to phase out the use of unnecessary plastic and polystyrene packaging it is now even more critical for food retail franchises to make sustainability a priority across their networks.
