Webinar 3: The Future of Risk – Food & Beverage Distributors
Based on the state of the global Islamic economy 2019/2020 report, the global Halal Food Sector is projected to grow 7.3% annually to US$1,972 billion by 2024. This is one of the fastest-growing sectors globally and the increased demand for Halal Food is presenting massive opportunities for business owners in this sector. It is no surprise to observe strong emphasis placed on growing the business but it is even more important to have a sound risk management framework to ensure sustainability in the long run. With evolving consumers’ demographics, supply chain disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, a shift in the technology landscape, and the rise of environmental, social, and governance accountability, business owners need to nimble and agile to react to these challenges. Yet at the same time, you need to have the ability to identify risks and their potential impact and the knowledge of transferring these risks through alternative risk solutions.
WHL is pleased to partner with SwissRe International SE, Singapore Branch, and Marsh Singapore for the upcoming webinar on “The Future of Risk – Food & Beverage Distributors”.
The session will commence with an overview of the megatrends facing the Food & Beverage (F&B) industry including changing consumer preferences, digitalisation, the evolution of supply chain, packaging and clean labelling, and how we can model from some of the successful businesses in managing these seismic shifts as well as increasing pressures arising from environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impacts on the F&B Industry.
You will also be shown an F&B risk map for a greater awareness of your businesses’ risk exposures and with this awareness, how you can navigate through the new economy as you focus on growing your businesses.
The session continues with an expository on the vulnerabilities of the Food Supply Chain and its inter-dependency. There will be sharing on key risks relevant to Business Continuity Management (BCM), probable loss scenarios, business recovery-resumption. Businesses can appreciate further the relevance and importance of Business Continuity Management. A retooled Business Continuity Plan and enhanced Supply Chain resiliency minimise the impacts of an interruption whilst businesses focuses on growth and profitability.
Audience will get to understand the key elements and components of a BCM framework and how businesses can look to establish and implement a basic BCM policy and framework after this session.
