GS1 Singapore Food Forum 2022

Digital Era of Food Supply Chain

GS1 Food Forum Header

In the face of challenges such as climate change, resource depletion and supply chain disruptions due to recent pandemic, the issue of food security has been brought into sharper focus. With limited resources, 90% of food in Singapore is imported from diverse sources.[1] The food industry needs to work hand-in-hand with the government to make sure food they offer to consumers is safe.

Food can be exposed to multitude of risks along the supply chain due to its growing complexity. Manufacturers, restaurants and food retailers still facing challenges to have full visibility of their end-to-end supply chains. Lack of a holistic view and understanding of potential risks can lead to food safety and quality failures, resulting in damage to a company’s brand reputation and bottom line.[2] More consumers are concern on food sources and wish to make an informed purchase decision.

In meeting the industry needs, this forum aims to bring together food manufacturers, importers, distributors and food retailers together to gain a better understanding of industry’s needs, identify areas of mutual benefit for collaboration and discover practical food safety solutions to implement in any size operation.
