Carbon Score Certification Is Gaining Traction In Food, Beverages

May 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
As the persistent pandemic stokes consumer interest in sustainable diets, food and beverage carbon labeling soon may hold more sway with consumers than other popular certifications. Labeling with a carbon score attracts consumers who want to know how much carbon was used in the production of an item: Net zero? 25 percent reduced? “That is the next phase,” says one industry observer. Brands that move quickly to add carbon labeling will appeal to consumers who are gravitating toward products with lower climate impact. Food and beverage companies already using, or exploring carbon labeling, include: Horizon Organic; Post Holdings’ subsidiary Bright Future Foods (Airly Oat Cloud Crackers); Maple Leaf Foods (carbon zero plant-based protein brands); Upfield (Imperial and Country Crock); Quorn Foods; Unilever, Mondelēz International, and Oatly.
