Supply Chain Workshops for Fresh and Chilled Exports

Location: Bord Bia Offices, Dublin 2

Date: 10th September 2018

Time: 09.30 – 17.00

Supply chain logistics and distribution is a key challenge facing the Irish food and drinks industry. The Barometer has identified Lead Times, Supply Chain Partners and costs as key challenges. These findings tell us that Irish food and drink companies are likely to face increased costs in their supply chain in the short and medium term. Companies will need to assess or audit the preparations of their supply chain partners, market access routes and their raw material sourcing channels.

Workshops focusing on fresh and chilled goods are scheduled to assist clients in identifying the most effective distribution and logistics strategies to supply the relevant channels in the UK, other EU and international markets. This will include cost reduction strategies, assisting in reviewing current and identifying new supply chain partners and an overview of managing customs and other emerging risks. It will also address customs compliance and other trade issues.
