Article 50 leaves food for thought
As Theresa May triggered Article 50, businesses across the food industry were suddenly exposed to a huge amount of uncertainty. In a post-Brexit world, it seems rising food prices are inevitable: something which will only leave consumers disappointed and angry. But can the food industry do anything now to maintain customer satisfaction while still protecting margins in the future?
In order to safeguard their operations against potential price increases, it’s vital that food businesses take action to optimise their supply chain. Through taking steps to reduce waste and align the supply chain to the “true” demands of the customers, food businesses can eradicate unnecessary costs and focus on adding value.
Waste is not a new challenge for the food industry, but with the uncertainty of Brexit, should the industry be doing more to combat this issue?
