Innovation: A driving force for responsible sourcing and resilience in the food supply chain

Vincent Doumeizel, Vice President – Food & Sustainability at LRQA

LRQA Break-out session description:
Responsible sourcing is evolving through greater transparency driven by consumer demand, advances in technology and new products. But what does the future hold for a more ethical food supply chain?

What impact will big data, blockchain technologies and microbiome analysis have on food traceability? Will these new technologies enable real time monitoring of the entire supply chain? How will what we eat change to become more sustainable? Will seaweed and insects be on the menu? What impact will digitalization have on audit business models to help clients better protect their brands? Ultimately, how will we ensure that consumers are confident that what they are eating is responsibly sourced and safe for them and the planet? Join LRQA as we explore these questions during our break-out session.
