New Campden BRI eBook: Mastering Supply Chain Resilience in the Food and Drink Industry


A new Campden BRI eBook is being launched to help food business operators (FBOs) deal with supply chain challenges by being more prepared, agile and resilient.

The new eBook, ‘Supply Chain Resilience: Identifying, planning for and overcoming supply chain challenges’ provides expert guidance for FBOs on how to build resilience within their organisations and be more resistant to supply chain threats such as food fraud.

“Whilst there are social and economic benefits to the growth of the food industry, it also increases the opportunity for things to go wrong with widespread implications,” said Andrew Collins, Global Food Safety Lead at Campden BRI.

“Supply chain resilience is the application of resilience principles and alignment to best practices, such that a business can protect itself from negative impacts of supply chain threats, as well as benefit from good reputation, efficiency and competitiveness. In our new eBook, we delve into the intricacies of supply chain resilience within the food and drink industry. The eBook explores business as usual resilience as well as crisis management, with a goal to equip FBOs with the knowledge and strategies needed to ensure the safety and stability of their supply chains” added Andrew Collins.

In recent years, the food industry has experienced a range of high-profile supply chain issues, including recent egg cost and availability challenges in the UK, and the even wider spread disruption to other commodities as a result of the war in Ukraine.

The eBook covers horizon scanning and how to prepare for and even prevent the impact of potential threats to your business. However, even with the right systems in place, factors outside of a business’s control can present challenges that require resilience for businesses to be able to successfully react and recover.

There are several tools and strategies that are discussed in detail in the eBook that form part of supply chain resilience. The key elements are:

  • Know your supply chain
  • Have systems, processes and procedures in place
  • Ensure the right culture for resilience
  • Analyse risk and make risk-based decisions
  • Know your products, packaging and ingredients
  • Be prepared and look ahead

“Building supply chain resilience will enable FBOs to effectively handle incremental changes in their macroeconomic environment and within their organisation, as well as sudden disruptions” says Andrew Collins.

Along with launching the eBook, Campden BRI offers a diverse range of support services dedicated to enhancing organisational and supply chain resilience. This includes helping organisations implement effective food safety management systems, providing expert support for verification activities such as auditing, and offering analytical testing solutions, horizon scanning support and regulatory advice.

Campden BRI offer customised training courses in various areas relevant to supply chain resilience. They also offer a Culture Excellence Program, developed in partnership with Taylor Shannon International, to promote a positive food safety culture that supports supply chain resilience.
