Sustainability series concludes
The characterization and transparency of a product’s sustainability is growing in interest among buyers, investors and others. Critical to this evaluation are comprehensive, scientifically sound product standards.
To help bring attention to these new directives in the food industry, the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT), Northwest State Community College (NSCC) and the Northwest Ohio IFT (Institute of Food Technologists), will host the final of four sessions in the Sustainability Speakers Series Dec. 8 from 8:30 to10 a.m. at the ‘H’ Building, Archbold.
Tom Bruursema, general manager, environmental and sustainability services, NSF International, will discuss the elements of existing national standards in product sustainability, how those are being implemented in the market, and new initiatives to expand the availability of standards into many other product markets.
NSF International is an independent, not-for-profit organization that provides standards development, product certification, auditing, education and risk management to help protect the world's food, water, health and consumer products.
There is no cost to attend, and a light breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. NSCC is located at 22600 SR 34, Archbold. Advance registration is required by calling 419-535-6000, ext. 108, or email
