What lies beneath the iceberg? The need for transparency

We take an honest look at the drive towards greater transparency, the motivation behind this desire across many sectors of industry, and how business has approached the adoption of technologies as an enabler.

Rick Sanderson FIFST, Chief Commercial Officer, QADEX, takes an honest look at the drive towards greater transparency, the motivation behind this desire across many sectors of industry, and how business has approached the adoption of technologies as an enabler.

Having spent a career in the food industry, Rick has been more than a casual observer since ‘Horsegate’ in 2013, as the food industry has tussled with the moral, desirable, contractual and in some cases now legal requirement to deliver transparent supply chains, and present supply chain maps to demonstrate their endeavours.

This is clearly not an exact science. Many companies he has worked with were starting from ground zero, and had never given this requirement a second thought. Others, as you would expect mainly those with some equity in the provenance of their goods, had taken some small steps towards this, but mainly those in retail and close to the agricultural chains as immediate suppliers. For the most part, this was a new challenge.
