ECR Ireland Supply Chain Summit

Working together in the Irish supply chain

Welcome to the 1st ECR Ireland Supply Chain Summit! The ECR Supply Chain Summit BrochureSummit will set the context for collaboration in the Irish supply chain. Ireland's most influential FMCG suppliers and retailers will share best practices, industry innovation and showcase the commercial value of working together. The Summit will anticipate trends and changes in the global & Irish grocery supply chains and consider ways of responding to them.

Progress will also be reported from the ECR Product Availability and Shared Logistics streams while potential collaborative ECR projects for 2014 will also be examined. Ultimately, the Summit aims to provide united leadership for the Irish food & drink industry on end-to-end supply chain topics on an annual basis. Integral to this is the participation and feedback from conference delegates which I encourage wholeheartedly.

I hope you consider the conference as a day of work away from the office and task yourself with bringing new ideas back to your company. I wish you a fulfilling day in this quest!

GS1 Ireland's Alan Gormley will present on the innovative "e-LOCATE" fish traceability framework solution currently being implemented by BIM and the SFPA. Two recent European Regulations 404/2011 and 1224/2009 require fish and aquaculture products to be traceable at all stages of production, processing and distribution. As a result, this places a considerable demand for product information to be collected and transferred through the supply chain from the place of catch or harvest right down to the end consumer in the retail outlet. "e-LOCATE" uses barcode and labelling technology to facilitate the transfer of this information, in a mutually understandable way, from fishing trawler, to auction house and through the processing stages to the retail counter.

Register now to hear more from Alan and the other guest speakers on November 13th!
