Food stockouts, disruptions in supply, hoarding and empty supermarket shelves. We have seen all this happening in the last few months during this COVID-19 pandemic and this has reminded all of us how important a safe and secure food supply chain really is.
CILT and CargoNOW will be discussing this very relevant issue on 24 July with Mr. Jackie Goh and Mr. Chew Chee Bin where we will look at:
The increased need for food safety (from the point of view of contamination)
Real life examples of how COVID-19 has affected meat plants around the globe, as well as container availability; and steps to overcome this
Challenges closer to home especially with the growth in demand in supermarkets and simultaneously challenges related to lack of manpower
