Food supply chain resilience – challenges & opportunities

RSSL's Barbara Hirst and Robert Griffiths will be presenting this insightful webinar considering supply chain challenges and the strategies that can be adopted to help mitigate these.



With food supply chains evolving, the food industry is facing a number of challenges due to external factors (the war in Ukraine, climate change, Covid-19, Brexit) and will continue to face disruption in the future. Switching ingredient suppliers is challenging and complex – there are a number of factors that need to be considered from authenticity, quality and potential contamination to risk management.


In this webinar we will discuss supply chain challenges and considerations as well as the strategies that food companies can adopt to mitigate these, helping to build a resilient and responsible supply chain for the future.

Topic areas we discuss include:
  • Current challenges in the food supply chain now and in the future
  • Ingredient substitutes and the potential impact on food safety and product performance
  • Food safety risk assessment - what and how?
  • Strategies to overcome these challenges
