Meeting Details :

The recent surge in demand for energy, labor and transport has placed significant pressures on just-in-time ordering, cross-border supply chains that keep factories open and shelves stocked. With supply chain problems set to continue, a key focus for food businesses will be tightening their operations, including manufacturing.

Some ways this can be accomplished include:

1. Being flexible with sourcing and distribution strategies
2. Modernizing manufacturing operations (think along the lines of a smart, connected factory, access to real-time data and full visibility)
3. Widening the use of automation

This fireside chat includes acccess to the recording, which will be available following the live event.
