I would like to host a Webinar around what changes we will see in the global foodservice industry after the Corona pandemic
Most of the companies operating in or supplying products to the international foodservice industry , has for the past weeks been forced to move their focus & attention on “guiding” their businesses through the immediate impact & consequences of the Corona virus!
I would like to host a seminar focus on what the future "needs & wants" of the industry" will be "after" the Corona pandemic will bring.
My guess is that they won’t be the same as before Corona & they have actually already stated to changed!
I strongly believe & I have had that belief confirmed by our partners, from all around the world, that the focus of most of our customers/clients & their customers or guests will change & the new “buzz words” of tomorrow, will be responsibility, social & environmental awareness & focus.
We hear of more and more companies emphasizing to their partners, suppliers & staff that they must choose partners that has a clear environmental & social profile & strategy, as well as a clear CSR profile, if their current partners don’t have these all cooperation must be terminated.
Another trend is that a lot of companies are moving their purchasing & sourcing closer to the homemarket or markets where the products are needed, not only to secure deliveries but also to minimize the impact on the CO2 footprint & take a stand socially by helping to create jobs locally.
The need for companies to be able to “think globally & act locally” will become instrumental for commercial growth in the future, the customers & end-users are already becoming more & more aware & focused on this so the demand for action is evident, here I believe that it's far from necessary to open local "offices" around te world to be local, you can use your partners & distribution network to secure the needed local presence & support that through on-line activitiesThrough the development & implementation of our own projects we have proven that it’s possible to switch you products, operation or services to a environmental & sustainable solution & still be profitable, this combined with a clear local & social profile will become a huge asset to most companies in the future
Basically meaning that a lot of companies will focus on:
- Local & social responsibility in purchasing & operation
- Focus on the environment & their “own” impact on it
- Responsibility towards the employees & local communities where they operate
Or as we say!
- Taking responsibility for your own actions!
- Increasing the business through responsible actions & measures!
- It’s possible to turn “green” & stay profitable
- Thinking global by acting local!
- Increase your presence online to promote the sales offline!
