The foodservice supply chain matured over the past decade, with increased use of technology, more data, and improved collaboration. But there is still a long way to go.

Operators want even closer collaboration with suppliers. They want more insights from suppliers, fewer and more strategic relationships, greater supply chain visibility, and deeper collaboration. They want to simplify their complex supply chains and want to leverage their supply chains to drive top-line growth.

- Supply chain leaders still face numerous issues.
- Suppliers and industry experts can add value to operators through collaboration and insights.
