Introducing the WildCheck Report: Assessing Risk & Opportunities of Trade in Wild Plant Ingredients

Featuring a Case Study on Frankincense


A Joint Webinar with the American Botanical Council's Sustainable Herbs Program and TRAFFIC

This session will introduce a ground-breaking new report entitled WildCheck: Assessing risks and opportunities of trade in wild plant ingredients. The report aims to inspire and support responsible sourcing of the hidden wild-harvested plant ingredients found in everyday beauty, health, and food products, such as shea butter, baobab, Brazil nuts, and licorice.

This session will explore various aspects of the report through discussions with stakeholders who interact with wild plant ingredients in different ways. What is the demand for these ingredients and how has it changed in recent years? Why is urgent action needed towards responsible sourcing, and who is responsible? What are the key risks to look out for, and the opportunities for businesses to seize? These topics will be explored by the speakers alongside real-world examples from frankincense supply chains.
