Welcome to the latest edition of Just Food’s digital magazine

Campaigners have cheered what’s been called landmark legislation by the EU on deforestation. But what might be the impact across the supply chain? 

The European Parliament has passed a law that seeks to ensure products sold in the bloc are not sourced from deforested or degraded land. 

Hailed by a senior EU commissioner as “pioneering regulation”, NGOs believe it will drive changes in supply chains for commodities like soy, palm oil and coffee. 

In the latest issue of Just Food’s digital magazine, we weigh up how food manufacturers – and their suppliers – may have to react. 

Elsewhere, we dig into the budding area of vertical farming, which has attracted a heap of investment but is facing questions about its viability. 

And we spoke to Mondelez International about how the snacks giant is using AI in its new product development.
