AIM-PROGRESS Responsible Sourcing Sugar Forum, India

AIM-PROGRESS members including Bacardi, Kraft, Kellogg’s, Mars, Nestle and The Coca-Cola Company convened a supplier forum in India on 11 July to promote responsible sourcing standards in the sugar industry.  The forum was hosted by The Coca-Cola Company and brought together approximately 100 supplier and brand representatives to discuss the importance of responsible sourcing, to share best practices and to agree on common evaluation methods to improve performance.


In addition to hearing about AIM-PROGRESS and customer expectations, suppliers heard about methods used to verify compliance to social and environmental standards and how to address common issues in India from SGS, an international audit firm. Bonsucro and Solidaridad also presented on the work that they have been doing to improve conditions within the Indian sugar industry. Following the success of the sugar forum, AIM-PROGRESS plans to hold more industry specific events.

AIM-PROGRESS releases internal library of sustainable agriculture initiatives

AIM-PROGRESS is pleased to announce the release of the ‘Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Library’. The library provides members with an overview of 75 different initiatives that are focused on sustainable agriculture.


The library is intended to be used by AIM-PROGRESS members as a quick reference tool to identify existing initiatives in specific crop areas and countries. Members will be able to use the document to help them recognize synergies and areas of collaboration with organisations working on sustainable agriculture. It is hoped that the library will also help to reduce the duplication of efforts in this sector.
