FreshForward 2019 Recap

FMI and Deloitte: Working together to improve food freshness

The fresh food industry is on the cusp of transformative change, faced with policy and business choices that will carry more consequential impact than anything we’ve seen in the past decade. As scale tends to be less of an advantage in fresh categories like produce, meat, and dairy, many of these policies and business decisions tend to be reactionary and driven by short-term thinking. FMI has the exciting opportunity to help remove barriers and establish a unified voice with a stronger, positive influence on regulatory policy and ultimately the future of our industry.
