Feb 26, 2013 - CSR-REPORTING - @elainecohen
The new Oxfam Report Behind the Brands is a must-read. It's only just been released and respected commentators such as Marc Gunther and Jo Confino of the Guardian have already published their insights with spectacular headlines such as "big food is failing the poor" and "multinational companies are failing on CSR goals".
The Oxfam narrative reads a little like a sustainable business horror story. There's not much that's new, but it's combined in a very effective round-up of the issues that have been on the sustainability agenda in the F&B sector for some time now. "For more than 100 years, the world's most powerful food and beverage companies have relied on cheap land and labor to produce inexpensive products and huge profits. But these profits have often come at the cost of the environment and local communities around the world, and have contributed to a food system in crisis."
