Policy Issues Council

The Policy Issues Council (PIC) is a forum of industry leaders that debates the strategic challenges facing the consumer good industry, focusing on economics, employment and skills, health and nutrition, sustainability and science.

Its membership is drawn from Chief Executives of leading companies in farming, manufacturing, wholesaling, retail and foodservice.

PIC supports our mission to equip the industry for a secure and sustainable future.

It is, in effect, the spearhead to invoke change and improvement across the industry to benefit all.

Supply Chain Leaders Forum

The Supply Chain Leaders Forum exists to promote the message of collaboration helping companies across the food and grocery industry to better meet consumer needs better, faster and in a more sustainable way.

We seek to spearhead change in the industry through specific projects by creating best practice and sharing this across the wider industry to encourage adoption/implementation.

The Supply Chain Leaders Forum provides a collaborative forum for retailers, manufacturers, distributors and foodservice operators to better meet the needs of shoppers.

The Executive Board provides leadership on the biggest issues affecting the UK supply chain. It brings people together to develop practical solutions that deliver meaningful change and sponsors projects in areas such as product and packaging waste and people development.

The results of the projects and initiatives are shared widely through our events, website and media.
