Building Resilience for a Sector in Transition

20 November 2020

Over the past few years we have seen rapid change that will impact the food and drink industry for years to come. This webinar explores how food and drink businesses can evolve to respond to key challenges impacting our sector.

Key forces driving change in the food and drink industry include:

  • The impact of Covid-19
  • Downward margin pressure from Brexit uncertainties
  • Developments in technology
  • Constantly evolving consumer requirements
  • Commodity prices and labour shortages
  • The living wage and supermarket buying tactics
  • The impact of environmental policy

Marsh and FDF provide an overview of how they are supporting food and drink businesses to respond to these key challenges.
