Feeding Cities Summit, 6th February 2018, The British Museum, London
FPC (Fresh Produce Consortium) is the latest trade association, alongside CILT, FSDF and FDF to add its support to UKWA’s Feeding Cities Summit, organised by UKWA as a direct response to the new National Infrastructure Commission study on the future of the UK freight industry.
The Summit will provide a forum for key industry stakeholders to consider the challenges, review the gathering evidence, identify the ‘gaps’ and, most importantly, develop a coherent industry-wide response and plan to present to the NIC.
The Budget defined the scope of the NIC study, with specific focus on the critical challenges faced by the UK freight industry – urban congestion, decarbonisation and how to harness the potential of new technologies.
In the context of food and beverage distribution, and food service logistics, these are key themes already promoted by UKWA and other leading trade bodies, which UKWA is bringing together to form a collective and collaborative voice to advise the government and develop a vision for the future.
UKWA’s CEO, Peter Ward, commented: “With the support of like-minded trade associations we are providing a platform for members of the logistics community along with grocery retailers, caterers, food and drink manufacturers and distributors, waste management companies, government agencies and industrial property agents to share a truly unique opportunity to influence the future shape of the nation’s infrastructure”.
A comprehensive agenda will provide insights into current best practice for conventional and convenience grocery distribution and food service logistics in urban areas with case studies from major grocery retailers, food outlets and leading logistics providers; whilst exploring exciting new infrastructure and technology innovations on the horizon.
The Feeding Cities Summit takes place on 6th February at The British Museum in London. Everyone attending the Summit will receive a complimentary copy of UKWA’s 100-page report ‘Feeding London 2030 – facing the logistical challenge’.
