“Designed to anticipate and meet future challenges and created with the objective to present an enhanced and transformed tradeshow integrating new digital experiences built to circumvent potential disruptions and embrace new paradigms in the food supply chain systems, Future Tea & Coffee Summit and Expo 2020 is powerful new platform that will enable its exhibitors and trade buyers to match, source and sell better, without the physical limitations of borders.
This is especially important and relevant as the advent of COVID-19 has forced many companies and entire industries, to rethink and transform their global supply chain model. It has also exposed the vulnerability of the supply chain of many organisations,” said Edward Liu, Group Managing Director, CEMS.
According to Alan Lai, Founder and Executive Director of ProfilePrintTM, “Future Tea & Coffee Summit and Expo 2020 is a one-of-its kind virtual show powered by ProfilePrintTM, a digital food standard based on rapid and non-destructive fingerprinting technology which was created to enable buyers and sellers to ascertain grade and quality without the need for physical samples, thus facilitating transactions with trust and arming the show with the ability to respond to the absence of taste and touch, a disadvantage yet to be overcome by most virtual expositions.”
