Flawless supply chains


Affluent and educated consumers will continue to push for greater brand transparency. They are cleaning their diets and cupboards of products with no clear purpose, preferring clean labels products with simple and understandable ingredients. The green customer wants to understand the impact of the product to human and animal welfare – all the way from raw materials to manufacturing, packaging, distribution and sales channels. A good product is good inside out, with a flawless supply chain that can be validated with sensors, IoT and blockchains. Many less affluent or more careless consumers, however, will continue to buy the cheaper and more opaque products. In many cases, outspoken value sets do not map with the real-life purchases. Brands need to decide what kind of world they want to promote.
