THE IFAMA 2020 WORLD CONFERENCE SYMPOSIUM IS LIVE!

September 22 - 24, 2020

The 30th Annual World Conference online offers two days of research paper presentations, special sessions with industry professionals, networking and more. The conference is streaming live now and will remain available after the event until November 2020. Don't miss the most important three days to watch, listen, and network with colleagues!



Food Chain Transparency: A Question of Governance?

A panel discussion with:

        Kristian Moeller, CEO of GLOBALG.A.P., Germany

        Anselm Elles, Managing Partner of AFC Consulting Group, Germany

        Johan Maris, Director of Peterson Control Union, Netherlands

        Sabbir Nasir, CEO of ACI Logistics Limited, India

Organizing transparency in food chains is no longer a question of technologies; they are available and widely tested. A growing number of IT solution providers are competing to be the single go-to platform, but so far, they have not been successful. Our panel discusses the possible reasons why major brands do not want to place all their transparency and traceability data for their competitive food chain with a single commercial and shareholder-value-driven IT platform operator, and what a governance structure should look like for a global Honest Broker Platform.
