We're excited to announce that our co-founder Andy Kennedy has joined the Produce Marketing Association (PMA) Board of Directors.
The foodservice industry is under intense pressure for complete and accurate product information. PMA members face a customer base that wants transparency around the products they buy, and a modern supply chain demands technology that provides this rich information.
FoodLogiQ Co-Founder Andrew Kennedy spoke on supply chain transparency during the PMA's Fresh Summit Convention and Expo on October 15th in Orlando, FL.
Moderated by Ed Treacy, PMA’s Vice President of Supply Chain Efficiencies, the session was titled “Supply Chain Transparency: Consumers Care (and So Should You).” The session covered how new technology is enabling organizations to communicate within the supply chain. The education session demonstrated to attendees how innovative organizations like FoodLogiQ and its customers are using technology solutions to create efficiencies, increase cost-savings and enable transparency up and downstream.
“I was thrilled to join other experts in the field to discuss such an important and growing topic in the industry,” said Kennedy, who specifically discussed how food companies are using whole chain traceability to achieve real farm-to-fork visibility across their supply chain and better address food safety issues and recalls.
As the largest trade show in PMA's history, the 2016 Fresh Summit featured attendees from over 60 countries, including retail delegates from around the world with special group delegations from China, Brazil and Malaysia.
“Fresh Summit provides three important tools to help growing global businesses in today’s fresh produce and floral industry,” said PMA’s Global Development Committee Chair Oleen Smethurst, assistant vice president/GMM, Costco Wholesale Canada Ltd. “It offers knowledge, innovation, and networking to help sellers and buyers from across the supply chain and globe explore new business opportunities.”
