In the food industry, freshness drives business, but achieving that freshness is a complex process. Retailers are looking for more frequent, smaller deliveries of a wider variety of products and seeking greater assurances that food is kept safe throughout the supply chain. At the same time, a growing number of retailers are offering fresh food and they have higher expectations of service.
New regulations, e-commerce, and increasing customer preferences for fresh, wholesome foods are all having a sweeping impact on the food supply chains of leading grocers, convenience stores, quick serve restaurants, retailers, and foodservice distributors. Penske Logistics and Food Logistics Magazine have teamed up with several leading experts to produce a special digital edition of the magazine that addresses many of the food industry's top industry trends, including: Food Safety Modernization Act, omni-channel fulfillment, fresh channel strategies, the state of the logistic industry, and much more.
