Food Supply Chain Center at Expo 2015, II Part



Friday 18th September 2015, Milano Expo, Italian Pavilion 5.00 PM (visit this web site in case the starting time changes)

“From fork to farm”: a new perspective for food supply chain. The role of logistics and the quality of food at the place of consumption

The laboratory of the food supply chain center (Director Prof. Manzini) at University of Bologna joining numerous international research departments, developed researches on the impact of logistics and distribution operations on different supply chains, including bakery products, fresh perishable fruit and vegetables, edible oils, wine, pasta, fine chocolate, cheese. These researches identify best practices and guidelines to support vendors, producers, packagers, carriers and retailers in reducing costs, environmental impacts and increasing the quality of their procedures.
To discuss about this and related topics the conference will be attended by Cavirani Vittorio, Design Director di Elettric 80 SpA, Nerio Zurli, CEO of Havi Logistics, Tommaso De Marco, CEO of East Balt Italia, Giovanni Sorlini, Director of Quality and safety and sustainability department, Inalca, Riccardo Manzini, Director of Food Supply Chain Center at University of Bologna, and many others.

Nowadays, the agro-food sector is reaching interest among governments and communities worldwide. The Expo 2015 Milan, is focusing therefore on several topics as food security and sustainability of current agro-food supply ecosystems.
Upon these topics, many questions arise:

- Which is the role of logistics and transport infrastructures to achieve food security in compliance with environmental constraints and limitations?

- Which is the role of packaging and transport operations in ensuring the food quality and safety along distribution?

- Which is the role of transport intermodality in reducing the environmental impacts associated to the agro-food ecosystems?
We try to adress such issues shifting the perspective of analysis from the renowned from-farm-to-fork, to from-fork-to-farm. This reverse journey along the supply chain demonstrates that is possible to track and measure the quality of food and to enhance the eating experience by the consumers, in order to defend the made in Italy export and the economic, environmenal, and social sustainability of the whole food supply chain.
The keyword of such a new approach is "integration".
