Business Forum Report

The report SUPPLY CHA!NGE in European food chains provides a comprehensive overview of the Business Forum, which took place in Milan in October 2015, as part of the SUPPLY CHA!NGE project. But more than just reporting about the event, the report analyses and explores the challenges relating to the complex, heterogeneous, and globalized nature of European food supply chains and their implications in the context of supermarket store brands.
