Blue Ridge and UniPro Webinar on Rethinking Food Distribution
War Stories of Three Food Distributors Deliver Strategies to Alleviate Risk and Build Supply Chain Resiliency.

Blue Ridge, a leader in planning and pricing software solutions, and UniPro Foodservice are hosting a webinar to help food distributors manage increasingly volatile supply chain conditions that lead to risk and profit loss. The U.S. retail food sector generates eight million tons of waste annually in distribution centers and stores, or $18 billion per year in lost value because of overstocks and spoilage. 

Hosted by Blue Ridge and UniPro, the webinar will highlight the strategies which three food distributors used to rethink resiliency in the face of challenges such as seasonality, long lead times, closures and hoarding that are driving stockouts through the roof.

Space is limited for the webinar, which is scheduled for February 24, 2021 at 1:00 PM EST. Register here.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Consistently keep food products in stock including perishables without costly excess
  • Drive huge efficiencies in order replenishment
  • Free up even more efficiencies and reduce costs through smarter transfers and inventory allocation
  • Improve customer service levels for increased sales, revenues, and profitability
  • Use newly discovered working capital toward other priorities

Learn from expert food distributors about advanced inventory planning solutions. According to David Huch, executive vice president procurement at UniPro Foodservice, “Delivering 98% forecast accuracy are redefining the investment required to meet stringent expectations for great service.”

Guest panelists include:

  • Sven Aunapu, senior business consultant at Blue Ridge
  • Ryan Vencill, account executive at Blue Ridge
  • David Huch, executive vice president procurement at UniPro Foodservice
