New tools enable companies to engage their supply chains efficiently
Laura Houghton, manager, global customer success and marketing for Segura and Simon Nicholls, managing partner, Weir T-S, talk with Ian Welsh about how new technology can enable retailers to have confidence that their suppliers are sourcing from where they say they are, and to help mitigate modern slavery risks in supply chains. They discuss the challenges of interacting with some suppliers, such as smallholder farmers, who may have no access themselves to technology, and how better data processing can help make auditing processes more valuable.
Segura and Weir T-S were sponsors of the recent Innovation Forum conference on business and modern slavery in New York.
