    Reimagining our food and food systems

    The COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating a transformation in our food and food systems. The closing of borders and restrictions in out-of-home channels have posed serious challenges to the food sector, both in terms of accessing consumer markets and supply. But this crisis also provided opportunities.

    It brought food organisations closer to the consumer and the farmer. New partnerships emerged and the value of digital and data has never been more evident. We surprised ourselves by how innovative, agile and fast paced we could be in times of need. It created momentum and gave us the confidence that change is possible.

    Deloitte Australia has launched the Reimagining our food and food systems webinar series to explore how food, agricultural businesses and retailers could transform themselves to build more resilience in their networks and seize the opportunities that this new world has created.

    Led by Vanessa Matthijssen, Deloitte Australia Consumer Products Lead, our conversational style webinars aim to help you imagine a vibrant future of food, as well as profile examples of other organisations to ignite your own digital transformation journey in the following areas:

    1. Digital supply chains in food
    2. Transforming consumer connections
    3. The intersection of food and health.
