Excellence In Manufacturing Consortium (EMC) and Niagara College’s Canadian Food & Wine Institute (CFWI) Innovation Centre, have partnered together for a virtual industry networking event for the food and beverage industry on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 1 p.m.
Jean-Pierre Giroux, president, EMC, and Lyndon Ashton, centre manager, CFWI Innovation Centre, will be leading the interactive panel discussion, titled “Growth, Innovation and Collaboration.”
COVID-19 has affected the entire food and beverage industry, regardless of our organizational focus, products produced, size or location of our company. Despite the challenges, one thing that has resonated is the necessity of collaboration to support business growth and market development across Canada and around the world. It has also outlined our interconnectedness from a supply chain perspective.
In this webinar, participants will be learning about the competitiveness of the sector, what innovations are going to help meet the needs of the consumer, the importance of collaboration in a changing market, leading ways on idea generation, adaptation and innovation, and how to help fund it.
Also on the virtual panel: Sean Aguiar, operations manager, Pilling Foods Inc.; Sheri Evans, local development manager, Sobeys; and Jen Mahon, vice-president operations at NorthBridge Consultants.
