The Catalyst© Newsletter February 2016
Dear,

Welcome to our first newsletter for 2016.
To start the year we cover the range of what we do from food systems to sustainability and innovation:
  • The Circular Economy, (something you may have heard of but wonder what it is?),
  • Natural Health Legislation - an update on the developing legislation
  • Carbon Neutral - how to tread lightly, some experiences in setting a goal that will challenge all businesses
  • Start-ups - our experiences with mentoring in a pressure cooker, and last, but not least
  • High Value Nutrition Science Symposium, something for everyone in the food industry
We hope there is something there of interest to you and we look forward to hearing from you and working with you over the year

Malcolm Garnham
