Wednesday 14th June saw representatives from a dozen regional family breweries meet for the inaugural Independent Family Brewers of Britain (IFBB) Sustainability Forum.
Hosted at our Bedford HQ, Brewpoint Brewery, the agenda focused on many of the common themes and challenges IFBB members face as they progress on their individual sustainability journeys. Topics discussed included Net Zero target-setting, cultivating a more sustainable supply chain, and examples of sustainability initiatives – large and small – that have already benefitted IFBB members.
Caroline Nodder, Events Manager for the IFBB, reflected on the day: “We were absolutely delighted to run our first ever IFBB Sustainability Forum last week in partnership with Wells & Co. at their stunning Brewpoint site. Sustainability is at the heart of what our members do, and by bringing together family brewers from across the UK to share their knowledge and experience in this area we hope to help speed up this journey and lead important change.”
Our Sustainability Manager, Ed Robinson, added: “It was a real pleasure to host our fellow IFBB members here in Bedford. Personally, I got a huge amount from our conversations throughout the day; everyone came prepared to contribute, share their learnings and best practice, and discuss how collectively we can act as advocates for the environment in the world of British brewing. I’m looking forward to the next IFBB Sustainability Forum already.”
