The Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to have a major impact on the food supply chain — all the way from the farm to the individual buying food from a retail outlet. Based on research carried out by Quocirca in October 2016, this report, commissioned by Rentokil Initial, looks at the various areas where the IoT will enable the food supply chain to gain the maximum benefits.
The Global Food Safety Initiative provides thought leadership and guidance on food safety management along the entire supply chain. Every year, experts from retail, manufacturing, food service industries, governments and service providers meet at the Global Food Safety Conference to share knowledge and promote collaborative approaches to managing food safety.
Against a backdrop of fast-paced developments in technology and an ever-changing global environment, the food industry is under increasing pressure to meet growing food safety demands. Rentokil Initial supports food businesses globally by harnessing innovation and expertise, and delivering technology-enabled service solutions to achieve audit compliance and mitigate risk through the supply chain worldwide.
