Increase stability and efficiency for distribution, energy, packaging, technical and training, and utilities.
Building supply chain resilience
Commodities prices. Packaging. CO2 shortages. Haulage vehicle stops and checks. Disruption at ports and harbours. These are just some of the hurdles our industry has had to navigate in recent times. There’s more we can do to safeguard ourselves from the worst impacts and respond more effectively to disruptions and instability.
Food security is a priority. As a nation, we can strengthen our own supply chains while also looking at how we can support those beyond our shores. We’re building supply resilience to mitigate risks associated with climate change and improve supply chain efficiency, as well as looking at local infrastructure challenges.
