From farm to fork, the protein industry is an inherently complex and dynamic supply chain. With current industry trends such as export growth, rising consumer expectations and traceability the challenges and complexity of this industry has only escalated.

For meat producers, disassembly and processing take place at different sites and even in different companies. Changes to one department still directly affect the other. In most cases there is a disconnect and siloed approach in the supply chain. Meat producers risk taking big losses in terms of results and margins as well as negatively impacting KPIs.

In this webinar jointly presented by Quintiq senior advisor Lee Hochberg and Fujitsu principal consultant Rob Cattley, we'll explore some of the biggest supply chain challenges in the meat processing industry and share insights on how meat producers can:

  • Enable real-time visibility of your surpluses and deficits to boost customer satisfaction
  • Maximize the efficiency of processing operations
  • Reduce sourcing costs, inventories, work in progress and prevent obsolete stocks
