GDST Session During the Consumer Goods Forum Sustainable Retail Summit

October 14 @ 04:30 - 04:55 EDT

Session Title: Leading Standards and Companies Change the Future of Seafood Traceability

Session Description: Retailers face some of the largest risks when it comes to brand reputation, and robust, full-chain product traceability is an excellent tool for companies to bring more transparency to their supply chains and validate the legality, sustainability, and social responsibility claims being made by their suppliers.  In the seafood industry, the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) has developed groundbreaking standards for electronic and interoperable traceability that enables effective, reliable, and affordable solutions across the supply chain. This session will bring together industry leaders to share their stories of why implementing the GDST standards is a business-smart decision, has helped them reduce various risks in their supply chains, and how utilization of the standards has already provided numerous benefits across their company and to their customers.
