The degree of mechanisation and digitisation is increasing. This overall social development is also increasingly affecting the fruit industry.

Artificial intelligence, or AI for short, has long since become a reality in the retail supply chains. This makes it clear: Those who do not invest now and ensure electronic data exchange with customers will soon be overtaken left and right.

As a one-day event in Düsseldorf, the Digital Supply Chain Forum (DSCF) on 2 June will provide numerous impulses on the most important digital topics in the supply chain of fruit and vegetables now and in the future.

The industry event is being organised by the German Fruit Trade Association in Bonn, Fruchthandel Magazin in Düsseldorf and Swisscofel in Bern. With the DSCF, the cooperation partners want to provide fundamental work and impetus for the industry so that digitisation is not seen as a 'necessary evil' but as a competitive advantage.

Renowned experts from retail, logistics and IT will shed light on the necessary building blocks for successful digitisation, which solutions make sense for which company and can be used profitably.

The programme also includes a look at other industries and continents such as China. In addition, terms and concepts such as EDI, block chain, EPCIS and ERP will be explained in practical workshops. Also on the agenda are topics such as data protection and security in the cloud as well as possibilities of B2B web stores for fruit and vegetables. The get-together on the evening of 1 June offers the opportunity for an informal exchange with the digital experts.

The DSCF is aimed at managing directors, decision-makers and executives from all areas of the fruit trade.

The event will take place in a hybrid format. This means that participants can decide whether they want to be present on site in Düsseldorf or connect digitally.
