Solidaridad to attend Kingsman Miami Sugar Conference
Most companies in the sugar sector recognize that only an integrated planning approach, including financial, social and environmental management, will allow them to prepare adequately for the future. Many of these leading businesses will get together in Miami, Florida on September 11 and 12, at the Kingsman Miami Sugar Conference, to share information on the state of the sugar industry in the Americas. Solidaridad has signed on as a supporting partner to this event.
Solidaridad and sugarcane
Solidaridad, a global non-profit organization, engages commodity supply chain actors in innovative solutions to improve production and ensure the transition to a sustainable and inclusive economy that maximizes the benefit for all. We have an extensive global programme to support growers, industry and buyers of sugarcane and sugar cane products.
Why did Solidaridad decide to support a private conference?
The Kingsman Miami Sugar Conference gives professionals information they need to make sound business decisions. These decisions affect the wellbeing of hundreds of thousands of people who rely on this industry for their income. Solidaridad believes that good business is the foundation on which a sustainable supply chain can be developed – so conferences like this can make a difference.
We want to draw the attention, particularly of these companies, to our experience in working in Latin American sugarcane. Together with our partners, Solidaridad has directly supported growers and milling companies, in Bolivia, Honduras, Belize, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, to improve their social and environmental footprint, while keeping an eye on the bottom line. We are also a proud and active member of Bonsucro, the global production standard for better sugarcane.
Changing the world together
Demand for sustainably produced sugarcane is increasing worldwide and companies are working to find ways of supplying it responsibly while maintaining their profitability. We look forward to a productive exchange of ideas and information at the Kingsman Miami Sugar Conference, that can help them in this quest.
