There is an increasing need for individuals and businesses working in food and fibre production to build supply chains that are sustainable.

Concerns over the long-term environmental impact of supply chain management processes mean companies must take steps to improve how their products are sourced, produced, and delivered. However, many professionals working in food and fibre production lack the specialist skills required to successfully implement sustainable sourcing along supply chains.

This Melbourne MicroCert will equip learners with the fundamental knowledge to apply sustainable sourcing along supply chains in an environment where there is a growing demand for greater social accountability.
