Delivering competitive advantage and managing risk in the Food & Beverage supply chain

Procurement and supply teams in the FMCG sector need to be nimble to respond to emerging food trends, global pressures, the threat17660032828_cf68ae7ff0_z of poor food quality and fraud and increased regulation. The sector is also being challenged to deliver substantial savings to their business, create sustainable competitive advantage, whilst managing risk and ensuring sustainable sourcing.

FoodProcure will bring together practitioners and industry experts to discuss a wide range of issues critical to the F & B supply chain. The programme features a healthy mix of presentation sessions, interactive round-tables discussions, hands-on workshops and networking opportunities.
