GIZ and IDH cordially invite you to attend an event this summer on the topic of living wages in the banana sector.

We are co-organizing this gathering to support retailers working on the subject to further pre-competitive collaboration and alignment. “Better Together: Retail Collaboration to Advance Living Wages in the Banana Sector” is meant to gather UK and European retailers to discuss common needs, envision common solutions, share learnings and best practices.

Based on the work we have been doing so far, we feel this is the right time to get together to celebrate progress while strengthening collaboration. Our goal is to increase efficiencies, facilitate processes for your supply chain partners and learn from each other. The event will be structured around key themes we have identified as paramount to further collective living wage efforts (stay tuned for a more detailed agenda to follow) while also leaving sufficient time for networking.

We will host a full day in-person event on June 22nd (10:00 – 17:00) in Berlin followed by a closing cocktail reception. Further logistical details will follow.

We look forward to your participation in this exciting event!
