Introducing FEI: Supply Chain Innovation

Share this article

We've all seen it in the news. Unilever CEO Paul Polman set a target to double the size of its business by 2020 while at the same time cutting its environmental impact by half. What gives him the confidence to embark on such a bold initiative? Supplier Innovation.

For a long time, the supply chain was part of execution - happening at the back end. Now, innovation happens concurrently and supply chain is no longer back office - no longer simply logistics but a strategic and influential partner in the innovation process in the front end. FEI: Supply Chain Innovation is focused on transitioning the supply chain leader to a strategic innovation partner.
Join us at the event as Unilever's Graham Cross, Director of Commercial Alliances and Supplier Innovation shares Unilever's movement from open to collaborative innovation. Hear more about their strategy to deliver sustainable growth through their Partner to Win Supplier Chain Initiative. Download the brochure for full session details
