Invitation and objectives of the workshop

The processes of globalization and economic turmoil have changed supply chains the world over but one aspect remains stable: the world always needs food and consumer goods. Logistics solutions accompanying the process of satisfying this demand become more and more sophisticated and environmentally conscious.

The objective of this workshop will be to have an exchange on the most up to date business solutions and technology aspects supporting this market sector.
The workshop is linked to the key topics of Expo 2015, focusing on „Feed the planet – energy for life“, pointing to the necessity of a more efficient supply and a more sustainable logistics.

The workshop is aimed at food and consumer goods manufacturers, distributors, retailers and their logistics operators.

The event is supported by Assolombarda – the Industry Association of Lombardy
