GS1 Supply Chain Week 2015

GS1 Australia’s Supply Chain Week 2015 returns for its fifth year on October 6-15 in Melbourne and Sydney.

The Supply Chain Week 2015 theme ‘Working together to achieve more’ promises to deliver an enriching network and learning experience for supply chain and logistics professionals, suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, business owners and stakeholders responsible for food labelling, digital imaging and item data.

The food and beverage program at Supply Chain Week is spread over two days (October 6 in Melbourne and October 13 in Sydney) with a focus on ‘Managing online content, safety and product authentication’.

The program is packed with the latest industry insights, global developments, local success stories, regulatory updates, future trends and access to industry experts to hear about food safety regarding product recall and counterfeiting, sharing product data in an omni-channel environment, and the latest technologies in packaging and labelling.

“This year’s program will focus on food and beverage, with demand for food safety, digital imaging and item data increasing, deliver the latest supply chain industry initiatives and enable GS1 members to explore the challenges and opportunities for the changing supply chain landscape of today,” GS1 Australia CEO Maria Palazzolo said.

Keynote speakers for the Food & Beverage days include Kimberly-Clark ANZ Manager Continuous Improvement & E-Supply Chain Mario Carniatot, Coles Supermarkets Supplier Standards & Performance Manager Matt Lowe, Mondelēz International Food Innovation Centre General Manager Angeline Achariya, and Fresh Produce Safety Centre ANZ Technology Manager Richard Bennett. They will address delegates about product data sharing, provide an update on food retailing, and discuss food safety and brand protection in relation to anti-counterfeiting.

Supply Chain Week 2015 delegates will also have the opportunity to network with sponsors of the event, including Authenticateit, B2BE, Checkpoint, Imaxeon, insignia, Matthews, OpenText, Stibo Systems, Telstra, MessageXchange, Prospecta Software, SPS Commerce and Zebra Technologies.

“Supply Chain Week 2015 is an experience not to be missed,” Ms Palazzolo said. “It’s an exciting opportunity for supply chain and logistics professionals in food and beverage to learn about GS1 standards, technologies and services, and what they mean for your business to achieve supply chain excellence.”
