As a result of COVID-19, a spotlight has been placed on the risks and real impacts on supply-chains in the food consumer goods space. From meat processing plant closures, to 300 per cent increases in demand for ginger, or surge in demand for canned goods and baker's yeast, CPGs are aware of the 'new normal' in a post-pandemic world. The risk of outbreaks, climate-related droughts, geopolitics, and trade disputes are all factors to be aware of. CPGs are looking more critically at their inventories, packaging, ingredients, distribution and logistics. Heightened attention on supply chain relationships, timely data analytics and intelligence, and the technological tools to monitor end-to-end visibility from farms to consumers, will be important for Canadian CPGs as we move into this new decade.

Join speaker Mark Juhasz on Wednesday Feb. 3 at noon EDT to learn more.  Registration is available here.

This is the first webinar in a new series called “The Learning Trough” brought to you by Food in Canada and the the Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology (CIFST).
