Food Defence – How to Protect Your Global Supply Chain
*Online Session*

1 Day SOFHT Breakfast Club
30 Sep

Online Session
30th September 2020

Consumer expectations go far beyond the guarantee of safe food, increasingly driven by lifestyle choices and belief systems. To secure and protect the local supply chain from risks of contamination, adulteration, and fraudulent threats has its particular challenges. To further complicate matters, consumer demand for variety is driving continued complexity into the supply chain, with the demand for differentiation, variety and increasingly exotic ingredients as the world becomes smaller and choice expectation increases. The further we reach out globally for materials and products, the more stretched our supply chain and the more vulnerable it becomes.

This online session explores the potential risks to both Local and Global Supply Chains from both internal and external threats. What makes supply chains vulnerable to such threats and how to consider them.

We will examine the practical considerations available to reduce or eliminate those risks, either through internal resources or with consideration and support from external service and solution providers.

Looking even further into the realms of opportunity as our UK exit from the EU approaches, can this V.U.C.A.* world offer a competitive advantage for businesses willing and capable of adapting to the latest iteration of the Global Food Supply Chain?

This workshop based online session has proven effective in delivering both best practice sharing and the opportunity for delegates to pose questions and develop networks.


The session will be led by Denis Treacy, Chief Technical Officer of Culture Compass Ltd.
