Transparency in the food value chain - what it is and how to start your corporate journey

Transparency in the Food Value Chain
What it is and how to start your corporate journey

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm (EDT)

Consumers today are sensitive to regional as well as global food issues, particularly the safety, authenticity, ethicality and sustainability of the foods they buy and consume.  In this fast paced digital world, trust in a brand may be just a click away and can be earned or lost without the consumer buying or consuming the product - depending on how a food business uses these digital tools to communicate. A consumer centric focus remains critical as both industry and government seek to improve trust in their food safety management systems, regulatory frameworks and consumer interaction.
