PARIS, 29th June 2021 — The Consumer Goods Forum is delighted to announce the following new companies have joined our global membership community and, in doing so, have confirmed their commitment to our vision of better lives through better business.
EVRYTHNG helps brands to learn from each product’s journey, end-to-end from factory to consumer, and beyond. We are committed to building an open and standards based product traceability and data exchange ecosystem and have contributed heavily to industry standards such as GS1 Digital Link and EPCIS 2.0, the Web of Things with W3C, and industry collaborations facilitated with the World Economic Forum for supply chain data exchange. We partner with leading packaging vendors and supply chain infrastructure providers to further the industry’s ability to gather and apply data for end-to-end visibility.
“EVRYTHNG feels very close to the commitments and value proposition of the CGF’s Product Data Coalition. We expect to be able to help connect our customers and peers to proven innovations, share learnings and insights from the pragmatic application of technologies to achieve outcomes, and open a network of new potential partners to the CGF. EVRYTHNG is pursuing a vision of a smarter, sustainable, resilient, efficient and accountable world with real time, trusted information about every physical product made, sold & used, at every point in its lifecycle. We see significant synergies with other CGF charters and workgroups, such as those focused on Plastic and Food Waste and on Sustainable Supply Chain.” – Niall Murphy, CEO & Co-Founder, Evrythng
Koppert Biological Systems produces sustainable cultivation solutions for food crops and ornamental plants. Together with growers and in partnership with nature, they work to make agriculture and horticulture healthier, safer, more productive and resilient. It is achieved by using natural enemies to combat pest infestations, bumblebees for natural pollination, and bio stimulants that support and strengthen the crops both above and underground. Restoring and protecting vital ecosystems in a natural way is the basis for healthy crops and a balanced environment.
“At Koppert we make agriculture healthier, safer and more productive in partnership with nature. Now we are happy to join CGF to contribute to the SDG’s, strengthening global partnerships for sustainable development in the food chain, together with a large community of global pesustainability leaders, and contribute to consumer needs and benefits.” – Henri Oosthoek, CEO, Koppert Biological Systems

As the only association in the consumer goods industry that is truly global, while embracing both retailers and manufacturers, and service providers, our members understand the value of our uniqueness. Many of the opportunities and issues that we face as an industry can’t be addressed by individual companies alone, or just by collaborating regionally.
