    Justin Martin | Director of Quality Assurance, Weaver Popcorn

    The strapped supply chain is impacting us all. Weaver Popcorn, one of the top popcorn producers in the world, is no different.

In this session, Justin Martin, Director of Quality Assurance, discusses how Weaver Popcorn shifted from a culture of product overfill to one that empowers operators to make proactive adjustments using real-time data.

    Managing a Supply Chain in the Modern World

    Eric Edmunds | Food Safety Director, The Acheson Group 

    The COVID-19 pandemic and other world events have taken presented supply chain challenges and taken their toll on how we think about and manage our supply chains. There doesn’t appear to be many signs of those issues slowing down, and ingredients, packaging, supplies and equipment, people, and logistics are all aspects of our supply chain that we depend on to provide safe and quality products to our customers. Furthermore, regulatory challenges and consumer expectations are driving the industry to adapt and develop new methods that require even greater attention to detail. Join Eric Edmunds, TAG Director of Food Safety as he discusses opportunities to create a robust, safe, transparent, and crisis-resistant supply chain by leveraging data while avoiding regulatory and legal pitfalls and giving your customers what they want.
