Justin Tait working jointly for Unilever and Oxfam, Jan-Kees Vis from Unilever and Clemens Tenge from Symrise AG, discussed how global firms – who are often distant from the actual sourcing from smallholders – scale up their positive impact on the livelihoods of smallholders.

Symrise, a global flavor company, shared an example of a lead firm/supplier partnership to improve conditions in vanilla production.
