With the rise of ethical consumerism, brands and retailers are investing millions in sustainable supply chains in response to pressing questions asked by consumers, challenging the validity of the origin of products purchased, who the people behind the company that is producing the products are, and whether these products are actually safe for consumption or use.
New global regulations also require brands to disclose more information about their end to end supply chain. Whilst transparency and traceability are undeniably the key concepts behind the development of effective supply chain management, how many brands are well equipped and prepared for such a drastic change in both the regulatory landscape and the changing consumer?
Join Mike Mediouni, Global Innovation Community Manager of SGS and Guy Escarfail, Vice President, SGS Global Head of Digital Supply Chains Solutions as they share their expertise and insights on the implications of traceability for both perishable and non-perishable items in the supply chain and how your company should rethink its supply chain strategy.
