Food and drink processors face the perfect storm as the end of Brexit transition period looms, Christmas approaches and the UK continues to battle coronavirus restrictions. In addition, the backdrop of climate change and consequent extreme weather is putting the supply chain under even greater pressure. Rarely has the industry confronted such an uncertain time, so it’s never been more important to ensure your business is as fit as it can be to tackle these challenges.

In this timely and vital webinar, three experts with extensive food chain experience will address three core commercial areas with a view to increasing resilience and efficiency, cutting costs and boosting operational visibility at a crucial time.
