ECR Community To Host 'Sell More, Waste Less' Workshop In Prague

ECR Community, a group that aims to deliver consumer benefits through collaborative practices between trading partners along the FMCG supply chain, is hosting a workshop entitled 'Sell More, Waste Less' in Prague on 30 November.

The event, which will take place in the city's University of Economics, will feature a range of talks from industry experts, along with round-table discussions.

Collaborative Model

The main focus of the workshop will be the launch of a new assessment tool for retailers and producers that will help them explore how to prevent waste through collaboration.

The collaborative maturity model was developed through a partnership between ECR Community Shrink, OSA Group and Oliver Wyman management consultants.

The model includes introducing initiatives such as repurposing, case-size changes, shorter supply chains, product innovation, efficient assortment, forecasting, and more.

Among the speakers are James Bacos, senior partner and global leader of retail and consumer-goods practice at Oliver Wyman; Emanuela Casalini, bar-code specialist at GS1 Italy; Dr Nevin Mutlu, assistant professor in industrial engineering at Eindhoven University; and Rob Broekmuelen, assistant professor of retail operations at Eindhoven University of Technology.

The event is free to attend, and ECR Community is expecting over 50 delegates representing buying, supply-chain and waste-prevention experts from retailers, as well as producers and academics.
