What is supply chain collaboration?

Supply chain collaboration is a proven business strategy that ensures the most cost-efficient delivery of goods and services into a more and more demanding and competitive global food and drink marketplace.

Supply chains are increasingly challenged to demonstrate their credentials on sustainability, environment, welfare, packaging and many other areas to satisfy emerging and complex consumer concerns.

SAOS’s supply chain team are experts in strategic development and innovative solutions, problem solving, answers to complex market challenges and creation of collaborative groups.
