SUPPLY CHA!NGE in European Food Chains

The latest developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic have reinforced the importance of systemic and holistic approaches in strengthening our societies’ long-term resilience. In this light, the report ‘SUPPLY CHA!NGE in European Food Chains’ is an informative read on food supply chains and how to make them more sustainable, fairer and, consequently, more resilient. The report, a comprehensive overview of the Business Forum held in October 2015 in Milan, analyses and explores the challenges relating to the complex, heterogenous, and globalised nature of European food supply chains and their implications in the context of supermarket store brands. The report identifies opportunities and provides recommendations for the process of making these supply chains more sustainable and fairer.

We must, therefore, enhance our international collaboration to support these countries not only in overcoming the present crisis, but also in strengthening their resilience for the future.
