FoodLogiQ to Share Impact of Data Quality Standards and Traceability at June 2020 Virtual Conferences


Live, in-person trade shows and events have taken a hard hit this year due to COVID-19. While some conferences have been canceled for 2020, many organizers have flexed their technology muscles and quickly pivoted to transform their events into virtual gatherings. Some of these events are free or easier to attend, allowing for more industry stakeholders to participate.

We are pleased to announce FoodLogiQ and our partners will be participating in two well-known industry events during the month of June that regularly draw thousands of attendees. 


GS1 Connect: Digital Edition: June 16 - 17, 2020

GS1 US has created a digital conference experience that brings together the best of both worlds: highly curated program content and the flexibility for when and where attendees choose to engage. Participants will hear why the role of supply chain and unique identification have never been more important. The conference will feature opportunities to learn about trends from industry leaders and keynote speakers. Leaders will share ways GS1 Standards are helping organizations adapt and accelerate to re-invent their supply chains to match shifting customer experiences. Cross-industry and track sessions are available for Retail, Grocery, Foodservice, Healthcare, Tech, and Innovation. 

Session: From the New Era to the New Normal — How Do We Get There?

Following the launch of the New Era of Smarter Food Safety, food industry leaders began reviewing their systems and researching protocol improvements. However, just months later, they suddenly faced unprecedented disruption and supply chain challenges. From handwashing to securing products, companies have re-evaluated and adjusted the way they do business. Learn how many of those using GS1 Standards for traceability have been able to extract supply chain insights and use that data to take swift action during a time of crisis.

Presenter: Julie McGill, Vice President of Supply Chain Strategy and Insights at FoodLogiQ

Session: Intelligent Labels Simplifying Case Level Traceability

From the field to their kitchen, shoppers want end-to-end visibility of their food. More and more grocery and foodservice operators are requesting advanced labeling at the case level in order to deliver on this promise. Learn about the ins and outs of how GS1 Standards like GS1-128, Digital Link, GS1 DataMatrix, and RFID are being used in supply chains today to achieve full chain traceability.

Presenter: Jeanne Duckett, Senior Manager, Transparency and Traceability Technology at Avery Dennison
