Protecting Food on the Move


The global food distribution network is complex, with many transfer points and opportunities for lapses in desired holding temperatures. If a temperature deviation occurs in any segment, food quality and safety can be compromised, increasing the potential for food waste during transit or damage to a brand’s reputation. In this informative session, Amy takes a look at common food distribution pitfalls and examines the best practices for each distinct segment of the cold chain. She also highlights some real-world case studies and detail the impacts of recent government regulations. Attendees will learn how the internet of things (IoT) is poised to impact the methods with which perishables are monitored and managed throughout the food supply chain.
