Sustaining Australia TV launched

In Australia, food and grocery manufacturing is a $131 billion industry, employing more than 324,000 people – therefore making a substantial contribution to the Australian economy and community.

Sustaining Australia TV (SATV) is a new online initiative produced by the Australian Food and Grocery Council in partnership with ASN Media to provide insights into the key trends that impact us all.

From social and environmental responsibility through to growing both domestic and international markets, Sustaining Australia TV brings you the issues that matter in this vital industry.

Presented in a news-style by award-winning journalist Anjali Rao (CNN, Sky News, The Project), SATV is a four episode online TV series. It features interviews with experts, industry professionals, and leading fast moving consumer goods organisations.

In the first two episodes, the program covers two topics that are a key focus for the industry and its consumers: Sustainability and Traceability & Scalability.

Within Sustainability, SATV looks at some of the ways the industry is finding solutions to reduce environmental impacts. We speak to the AFGC’s Sustainability lead Barry Cosier about the challenges associated with food packaging and achieving societal and environmental outcomes as well as government targets. Followed by a look at what Tetra Pak is doing to create sustainable and innovative packaging.

In episode two, the focus shifts onto Traceability & Scalability. We speak with Dr. Geoffrey Annison about the ways regulation, digital technology and innovation can address emerging consumer needs. Retail Futurist Howard Saunders expands on this topic by outlining the trends set to have a dramatic impact on the way we shop. GS1 provide a real life story about using data and technology across the supply chain to inform consumers about the source of products. RMR Process shows how they used technogy to scale up production with sustainable investment.

The program is presented in an on-demand format, so you can watch a whole episode or individual pieces of content: choose whatever is of most interest to you.
