Resilience of global food supply chains – workshop findings

During February, March and April 2019, the Resilience Shift, working with Arup’s supply chain logistics experts, hosted seven workshops on the topic of Resilience of Food Supply Chains.

These were designed to improve our understanding of how diverse stakeholders view the  dependency of global supply chains on infrastructure resilience and how the Resilience Shift could support organisations to better plan for certain events.

This publication is a companion document to the main report and contains more detail of individual workshop findings for Brisbane, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Madrid, Manchester, New York and San Francisco.
