WASHINGTON, DC - Last week, the International Fresh Produce Association’s (IFPA) Executive Leadership Summit took place in Santiago, Chile. This event convened 150 Chilean and global supply chain leaders and covered global trends, discussion groups on key topics, and a deep dive on produce packaging.

NielsenIQ analysis of consumer shopping behaviors noted that global fresh food moved from sixth place to fourth place in fast-moving consumer goods globally. Contributing to this growth is consumer interest in building, maintaining, or improving health and wellness.

Another topic of interest was the passage of the Plastic Packaging Waste Reduction (PPWR) rule by EU Parliament. IFPA’s message to policymakers there is that food safety, food quality, and no new carbon miles are nonnegotiable.

For IFPA’s Board of Directors, some key concerns ranged from sustainability, packaging and plastics, and standardization around sustainability, as well as rising costs and the effects on consumers.
