Event: Building sustainable sources of wild- collected raw materials: the FairWild
approach Thursday 12th Feb, 16:00 - 17:00 (Krakau, NCC East)

Demand for wild-collected raw materials increases, putting pressure on wild resources. Buyers need to secure access to ingredients. Putting in place sustainable collection systems is vital, but can be complicated in practice. Approaches need to focus on both the wild-resources and the communities that collect them.
This session explores do’s and don’ts other companies and organisations can use when engaging with current or new suppliers with the FairWild Standard and
certification scheme. The session will identify practical ideas and tools on how to work towards conversion to sustainable wild collection efficiently and effectively.
Join us and our guest speakers for a lively discussion!
