Building a Sustainable Food Network


Summary Charts

  • Survey Details: The research for this report was conducted from January 8 – April 15, 2014. It is based on online surveys conducted among suppliers (Food Manufacturers / Suppliers and Produce Growers / Shippers) and non-suppliers (Grocery Retailers / Wholesalers, Food Service Distributors / Redistributors, Food Service Operators, Third-Party Logistics / Transportation Providers in the food industry network (n=70).
  • Objective: To determine the current maturity of relationships in food industry business networks.
  • Highlight: Companies within the food network have automated and improved visibility within the four walls of their enterprise, but inter-enterprise, multi-tier visibility with multiple trading partners remains an opportunity. While the logistics and transportation visibility gap has been closed, visibility for first tier suppliers and between third-party logistics carriers is both important and lagging in performance.
