Can your business REDUCE WASTE through Supply Chain flexibility?
The economic cost of ‘supply chain’ food and drink waste is estimated at around £5 billion.
Leading retailers and their trading partners are now looking at reducing food and drink waste in the supply chain; highlighting how collaborative working can reduce waste. Waste is a by-product of an unhealthy supply chain, whether it be food, product, transport, or cost based. Waste is impossible to eliminate; however solutions are available to minimise it.
All businesses must also balance efficiency with contingency, and in today’s global supply chain we must ask how can we minimise waste and remain flexible.
Speakers from the Supply Chain, Retail, and Sustainability industries will discuss this topic in detail and how they see how supply chain solutions can reduce wastage and if these solutions can also maintain an agile supply chain.
