You can now book your tickets to Bonsucro Global Week 2020! We’re delighted to take our annual event to Mexico this year – and we hope you’ll join us there for an unforgettable time exploring the world of sustainable sugarcane.
The event will take place from March 25 – 27 in Guadalajara, Mexico. Bonsucro will have a number of different panellists, conferences and break out groups, as well as, the Bonsucro Awards and the annual field trip to one of Bonsucro’s certified mills.
Mexico, as one of the world’s biggest sugarcane producer and exporter of sugar, is an ideal place to explore the sustainability challenges and opportunities in the industry today – and as an exciting, vibrant destination in its own right we are certain that it will provide a superb welcome to all of the Bonsucro.
2020 is set to be an important year for Bonsucro as many businesses step up their efforts to meet sustainable sourcing commitments, all while sugarcane producers around the world continue to improve their performance. Among other key developments, the latest Chain of Custody Standard and Credit Trade Platform will have been launched and we’ll be providing updates off the revision of the Production Standard, plus certifications against the new Smallholder Standard will be well underway.
More about the Bonsucro Awards
The Bonsucro Awards return for their ninth year to recognise individuals, companies and organisations that contribute significantly towards achieving the Bonsucro mission: responsible sugarcane production creates lasting value for the people, communities, businesses, economies and eco-systems in all cane growing origins.
