LECTURE BY CYRILLE FILOTT
Moderator of the Session 2
Lecture: Re-thinking the supply chain in bakery
Session 2, 17 June 2022
Late 2020 and especially in 2021 the bakery sector was hit by wave 1 of inflation driven by supply chain issues caused by Covid-19. Many bakers had to increase prices to their customers as a result. Now in 2022 the conflict in Ukraine is putting pressure on supply and supply chains again, leading to wave 2 of inflationary pressures. In his talk, Cyrille Filott will reflect on learnings from wave 1 and wave 2. Then he will discuss some of the factors that companies need to be mindful of going forward, including geo-politics and sustainability. He will close by making suggestions what the supply chain could look like for industrial bakeries, and what measures could be taken both strategically and operationally.
