Ice-cream sector launches Action Plan for sustainable food systems

Published: 13/06/2023

As part of the EU Code of Conduct on Responsible Food Business and Marketing Practices, the European Ice-cream Association, Euroglaces, is helping its members deliver on the Code’s aspirations and objectives.

Euroglaces has developed an Action Plan focussing on three of the Code’s aspirational objectives::

  • Aspirational objective 1: Healthy, balanced, and sustainable diets for all European consumers,
  • Aspirational objective 4: An optimised circular and resource-efficient food chain in Europe,
  • Aspirational objective 7: Sustainable sourcing in food supply chains.

The Euroglaces Action Plan is a call for European ice cream industry-wide actions or business practices to implement the Code’s aspirations and objectives, on a voluntary basis.

The Action Plan aims to inspire the European ice cream industry to take their own concrete actions or formal commitments contributing to the above-mentioned aspirational objectives.

The Action Plan also includes examples of good practices that the rest of the ice cream industry can learn from.

Euroglaces commits to periodically review and update its Action Plan, and to bring forward further actions to deliver on the Code’s objectives.
