EMC has always embraced the value that comes from peer networking and this spring’s activities have certainly demonstrated just that! Our special GF2 Funded Food Sector Networking Events and Regional Strategic Interest Group (SIG) sessions, have touched on some interesting subjects from going paperless, to Maintenance opportunities, to food safety and traceability, to legislative issues and dealing with business growth! The learning is ongoing, the sharing magnificent, and the tours excellent!
