Food Supply Chain Secrets in the World of COVID-19

FoodChain ID COVID-19 Webinar Series

May 28th, 10 am EDT 

Decernis will leverage its global client base to explore information shared – anonymously – from our clients on some of the challenges they are facing and then present them systematically. The Panel will review some of the challenges Food Producers and Distributors face and the corresponding ingredients concerns supply chains are facing, fed anonymously by our clients throughout the supply chain.  A major ingredient manufacturer will talk about challenges in sourcing and innovating in the current COVID-19 environment as well as what downstream impact we can expect.  Finally, we will visit the concept of changing consumer preferences both in the short and long-term.

Topics covered in this webinar will include:
  • Commodity challenges
  • Regulation Enforcement in the time of COVID-19
  • Changing Consumer Preferences
