The Impact of Paper Records on a Retailer

Retailers are the face of food quality to the consumer. We all remember a product being removed from a shelf in a supermarket and the newspaper headlines from a major recall. Do we remember the producer’s name? The answer is most likely not.


The Impact of Paper Records on a Food Producer

Inevitably, control of food quality and traceability rests solely with the producer.

In my September post, the ironically titled "Are British factories an Endangered Species" (and for the record the answer is an emphatic NO!) I proposed that servitization was a route through which business could grow and simultaneously deepen the relationships they have with their customers.
