LCA of Foods 2014 will serve as a global forum in which to share recent developments in LCA methodology, databases and tools, as well as applications of LCA to food-production systems and food-consumption patterns.
The American Center for Life Cycle Assessment, ACLCA, is pleased to host the Ninth International Life Cycle Assessment of Foods Conference in San Francisco, California in 8-10 October 2014. This dynamic event – globally known as the LCA Foods 2014 – unites the scientific community with food industry professionals, researches, academics and policy makers. This will be the first time the conference is being held outside of Europe and it is an opportunity to showcase and enhance the sustainability of US Food systems. This conference will be held back-to-back with the LCA XIV Conference
The Vision of the LCA of Foods Conference is to combine the scientific academic approach of the conference with an LCA-based sustainable food fair that brings together food and food packaging producers, researchers and retailers. Exhibitors are encouraged to have LCAs in hand to make their point that sustainability is measurable and therefore doable, thus providing consumers choices, which CAN drive the sustainability of our food systems.
