While maintaining 100% traceability across all ingredients and product lines is the ideal, the reality is that complex supply chains with multiple supplier tiers involve an element of trust. How can the whole chain work together to achieve and maintain this, particularly when issues such as the Ukraine conflict create exceptional disruption? And how can major risks from allergens or food fraudsters be minimised? And how can technical, food safety, quality assurance and supply chain managers ensure products continue to comply with the standards their employers are committed to?

Issues have already arisen over substituting sunflower and other food oils in products, but a host of other ingredients are also under pressure.

Ben Dodridge, head of technical, Tesco Central Europe will give his opinions and advice, while Liz Ward, senior director, supplier quality, EMEA at McCormick & Company will offer a supplier's perspective, including exclusive case studies.

Andy Kerridge, food safety and quality consultant at Wyvern Food Solutions, whose previous experience includes stints with PepsiCo and Burger King, will also be on hand. And Adrian Reagan, head of professional services delivery at Aptean, will explain how technology can support supply chain best practise.

In addition to downloadable presentations, registrants can benefit from a live Q&A panel during the event to address their burning questions.
