Supply Chain Transparency:
Now More Than Ever
The importance of transparency and building relationships with quality suppliers cannot be overemphasized in today’s increasingly global supply chain. It has been estimated that 80% of dietary ingredients come from China, which raises serious issues for buyers including how to assure regulatory compliance and developing a business partnership. Heather Granato, Vice President of Content in Informa’s Health & Nutrition Network, recently visited China and had the opportunity to engage with key suppliers and discuss their growth strategies. Join Heather as she recounts her China tour and her top three takeaways that could guide your next business decision, and offers context around why selecting suppliers and ensuring the traceability of your supply chain has never been more critical.
