A legal case heading to oral argument before the U.S. Supreme Court this spring has far-reaching implications when it comes to something you hold near and dear -- your confidential commercial information. FMI is a named party in the case because we believe strongly that it is FMI’s role to defend our industry’s right to compete on a level playing field as well as its ability to serve a customer base as diverse as the nation’s palate.
During these rapidly changing times, the food retail industry is demonstrating the ability to rise to the challenge. Our enhanced ability to adapt, adopt and evolve is preparing us for the next golden era of food retail, doing what we do, smarter and better. We stand poised to be the Da Vincis and the Michelangelos, leading the emerging renaissance of retail.
This time of year our attention is drawn in an interesting dichotomy of directions. On one hand, the demand for end of year reports and close-out budget requests directs our gaze to the past and calls for reflection. On the other hand, the anticipated January 1 flip of the calendar into 2019 calls for a flurry of forward-thinking preparatory activity.
