Improve your Food and Drink supply chain resilience and profitability

This half-day event is fully funded for SME manufacturers, and can lead to additional funded support opportunities.

Learn how businesses are using technology to improve forecasting, compliance and supply chain management. Experts from the Digital Supply Chain Hub and partners will showcase practical examples from the food and drink and related sectors including:

There will be an opportunity to join facilitated peer-to-peer discussions on supply chain and supplier challenges you are facing with expert guidance on potential data and digital technology solutions. Attendees will also be offered fully-funded technology roadmapping workshops to deepen the conversation; access to a digital supply chain readiness diagnostic and report; and tailored referrals to further support and funding.
