Addressing Deflation: The Elephant in the Room

Tuesday, October 18, 2016 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)
Food Institute/ FMI Webinar Sponsored by BMO Harris Bank

Food price deflation has become a favorite media story, led by falling prices for meats and other proteins. This has been a challenge and a blessing for food retailers and will continue to be a challenge to earnings of food retailers. The food shopper will benefit in these economic times, but what will an environment of deflation mean for the entire supply chain? Join hosts from the Food Institute, Food Marketing Institute and special guests for a members-only webinar on Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. ET that will directly address the numbers; the business implications; the politics; and what it will take to adapt to a volatile economic outlook.
