Benefits of Becoming a Member

What our members say

“M&S can’t change the world of palm oil on its own. We use a fraction of the world’s supply. By teaming up with other big players in the industry through The Forum, we have additional leverage and can share best practice. Very simply, together we are stronger and can move faster to help create a more sustainable approach to production and consumption”.

What our members say

“Our company has been able to make public commitments towards health and wellness and the work we do within The Forum has helped us get there. Of course, it’s not just the big, far-reaching goals, but about the small things you learn along the way too”.

What our members say

“Through collaboration in our GFSI multi-stakeholder Working Groups, we’ve been able to look at managing food safety on a whole new level. Our desire to see global and industry-wide solutions means that we can find answers to the food safety issues within integral supply chain activities, and this would be more difficult to do if we acted on our own”.

What our members say

“My company and I really benefit from The Forum’s events. Through the plenary sessions, workstreams and workshops, there has been a genuine effort to share knowledge and best practices to help ensure a sustainable future for our industry by putting the customer first”.

What our members say

“If you want to know where the future is going to be, there is no place better than The Global Summit. We’re talking 1,000 CEOs and thought leaders coming together to talk about improving every aspect of our industry. We need events like this and The Forum delivers”.

What our members say

“It’s important we contribute to a better life for all by encouraging a culture of prevention, and The Forum provides the perfect platform to ensure we can take positive steps as an industry and not just in our own silos”.

What our members say

“I always find it inspiring that our industry can come together through The Forum with the purpose of collaborating and sharing ideas, and to create positive change and genuine momentum. There are a number of projects that have the power to define our industry’s future and I want my company to be a part of that”
