UK Food & Drink Industry
The Food & Drink sector is the UK’s largest manufacturing sector, but it is facing pressures as never before. With an ageing workforce and the uncertainty of Brexit, labour and skills shortages are a major problem looming on the horizon, while rapid changes to consumer demands and retail habits are forcing businesses to become ever more innovative just to maintain market share and profitability. And demands for companies to reformulate products to reduce salt, sugar and other ingredients create a whole new set of challenges.
Surrounding all of this is the regulatory framework, which demands tight control of inbound, internal and outbound logistics processes to ensure product quality, safety and compliance with global regulations and guidelines, and full traceability. We address these issues in detail in a series of webinars which we will be running during May. See below for further information.
