 'Ordinary'  food supply chains across the UK have been turned on their heads over the past few weeks, so many small enterprises have had to change tack to adapt to a changing market.

This webinar will showcase several food organisations who have responded quickly to the changing environment to cope with changing demand and new consumers. Our speakers will talk you through what their organisations are, how they have adapted to the changing food environment, what has and hasn't gone well, and what practicalities enabled the shift in models (online platforms, delivery services, payment systems etc.).

Sustain will present the results of the recent 'shifting supply chains' survey and there with be time for Q&As. Please feel free to share webinar details among your networks.
