The ECR Community Shrinkage & On-Shelf Availability Group has announced details of a ‘Be Fresher, Sell More and Waste Less’ workshop, which will be held at Hamburg’s Kühne Logistics University on Thursday June 7th 2018.
The workshop follows on from a successful seminar held in Prague late last year, which welcomed retail representatives involved in both day-to-day operations and supply chain, as well as food waste prevention experts and academics.

ESM: European Supermarket Magazine has been confirmed as media partner for the forthcoming workshop.
The workshop will provide an update on some of the initiatives being promoted by ECR’s Shrinkage & On-Shelf Availability Group, including the implementation of ‘data bar’ technology into the retail environment, and the Collaboration Maturity Model, which seeks to optimise areas in which actors in the supply chain can develop collaboration partnerships.
The workshop will also play host to a discussion on food waste prevention in the e-commerce space, as well as weigh up the pros and cons of price mark downs, particularly with regard to the fresh produce category.
Further information on how retailers, producers and academics can register for the workshop can be found here.
