Prof Consulting Group, a customer-focused food and grocery consultancy, and My Emissions a leading provider of affordable carbon footprint labelling, have announced a partnership.

For brands looking to differentiate across retail or food service carbon footprint calculation and labelling of food is growing in popularity, enabling environmentally focused consumers to make informed choices. The partnership will deliver an integrated approach of practical advice and access to scientifically based tools making carbon footprint easier to adopt. 

With the rapid growth of the ESG agenda consumers are demanding more information regarding their food choices, partnering with My Emissions enables us to help businesses rapidly fulfil consumer needs, said Mark Field, Founder & CEO of Prof Consulting Group. “Additionally improved visiablity of product performance enables the food businesses to drive improvements as an essential part of their wider ESG strategy.” 

This affordable solution has the flexibility to help the local coffee shop rate their menu, differentiate in the QSR sector or support major FMCG businesses labelling their products into retail. 

UK based and founded by Matthew Isaacs and Nathan Bottomley, My Emissions’ purpose is to help food providers calculate, reduce and communicate the carbon footprint of food, helping consumers make informed choices. In a growing market the ease of use, simplicity of messaging and value of the program has enabled My Emissions to gain market share across grocery and foodservice. 

“Increasingly consumers want to see the climate impact of their food so they can make sustainable choices, and we want to help food companies offer this,” said Matthew Isaacs, Co-founder of My Emissions. “Prof Consulting Group instantly stood out to us due to their industry experience and knowledge, and I’m therefore proud to be partnering with them and making simple, affordable, and accurate carbon labelling for food available for the first time in Australia and New Zealand.”

Prof Consulting Group also recently announced a strategic partnership with S4RB, the leading provider of Supplier Collaboration software to Help FMCG Brands overcome the scale and complexity of achieving ESG Goals. 

For brands looking to accelerate their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) journey, the partnership provides an integrated approach of practical advice that demystifies sustainability and a software platform and process that maximises supplier engagement. 

“Businesses need to understand their customers’ ever-evolving demands and to prioritise the issues that matter most,” said Mark Field, Prof Consulting Group’s Founding Director. 

“Whether it is reducing carbon emissions, eliminating unnecessary plastics, or promoting a more responsible supply chain, And that’s why both of these partnerships with My Emissions and S4RB excites me.”
