"The food trade is aware of its responsibility as part of the value chain. For years, it has been committed to making supply chains more sustainable, especially in the private label sector. Members also participate in sector-specific alliances, such as the Cocoa Forum. There are also horizontal formats, such as the Initiative for Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains (INA), which specifically focus on cross-cutting issues. BVLH is involved in INA and eagerly awaits further developments."
