Malene Teller Blume, Compliance Manager for non-food products at Coop, will discuss how her organization has worked to eliminate endocrine disrupting chemicals from its private label products, beginning with parabens in 2006 and including other chemicals, such as BPA, since 2009. Coop has also executed other actions to reduce harmful chemicals. Coop is Denmark's leading retailer, with about 1,200 supermarkets and 36,000 employees. Coop is owned by its members, who want to see a financial return and want their company to be socially responsible. Malene Blume will discuss her organization's policy on chemicals, the impact the decision has made on sales, and the way consumers perceive their products. Coop's stance is that consumers should be given the ability to make an informed choice about the products they buy.
