Learning from Hurricane Florence: Managing Food Supply Chain Disruptions

Disruptions, especially those caused by variables beyond our control, are bound to occur in the food supply chain. These include political upheavals, economic meltdowns and natural disasters. Hurricane Florence recently swept through North Carolina, the location of our main office, leaving in its wake billions worth of damaged property and infrastructure. Agricultural losses are estimated at $1 billion dollars. For anyone in the food industry, it's a not-so-gentle reminder of the often powerful impact of supply chain disruptions.

Food Fraud: Reducing the Risks and Ensuring Food Safety

Food fraud is a rising concern in the food industry.  The deliberate substitution, addition, tampering, or misrepresentation of food for financial gain defines food fraud. The Grocery Manufacturers Association estimates loss between $10 to $15 billion to food fraud each year. As the food supply chain becomes more complex and global, the possibility of encountering food fraud along the chain increases. Unfortunately, detecting and tracing cases of food fraud to the root sources becomes tougher.

Ensuring Food Safety and Building Customer Loyalty in Dog-friendly Restaurants

For dog-lovers, a meal at their favorite restaurant in the company of a four-legged friend might be the perfect treat. According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), 44 percent of American households own a dog. Although not all patrons are inclined to bring their pets along when eating out, there’s still a significant market opportunity.

The Pros and Cons of Family-friendly Restaurants

Bawling babies, tantrum-throwing toddlers, and picky preschoolers. These are not exactly your picture of perfect restaurant guests. Despite the many hassles of running a family-friendly restaurant, however, more restaurant operators continue to embrace this style, opening their doors to both adults and children.

In fact, banning kids in a restaurant can draw criticism. When Hampton Station, a craft beer bar and pizzeria put up a “No Children” sign last year, customers took to social media to express their dissatisfaction. However, some restaurants have experienced a business boom after implementing a kids’ ban.
