Gareth Ackerman has just been elected as Co-Chairperson of the Consumer Goods Forum, a position that he will occupy for the next 2 years.

  • Sustainability: He says that the members of the forum are working to use technology that will reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases into the environment.

  • Food waste: Ackerman advises that the members will need to address more effective ways of maximum food production with minimum wastage.

  • Palm oil: According to Ackerman, the issue of palm oil and deforestation will need to be combated in the way that member companies make their products.
