Topic: Supply Chains and Food CPG - Readiness for a Post-Pandemic Future:
As a result of COVID-19, a spotlight has been placed on the risks and real impacts on supply-chains in the food consumer goods space. From meat processing plant closures, to 300% increases in demand for ginger, or surge in demand for canned goods and baker's yeast, CPGs are aware of the 'new normal' in a post-pandemic world. The risk of outbreaks, climate-related droughts, geopolitics, and trade disputes are all factors to be aware of. CPGs are looking more critically at their inventories, packaging, ingredients, distribution and logistics. Heightened attention on supply chain relationships, timely data analytics and intelligence, and the technological tools to monitor end-to-end visibility from farms to consumers, will be important for Canadian CPGs as we move into this new decade.
