EY has today announced the signing of a sponsorship agreement with the Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC).

EY Oceania Consumer Products Leader Glenn Carmody says EY is excited to have the opportunity to work closely with the AFGC and the food, beverage and grocery suppliers across Australia it represents.

“We understand this sector and the challenges businesses face from the constant push for greater efficiencies, changing operating environments and empowered consumers. EY brings a wealth of local and global experience, skills and insights that can help Australian food, beverage and grocery manufacturers deliver both short-term results and long-term profitable growth,” says Carmody.

“There are big opportunities for businesses across the sector to better use new technology and data analytics to make major gains in everything from customer strategy, ethical sourcing and supply chain sustainability,  to last mile logistics, trade spend analysis and operating model efficiency.”

AFGC Chief Executive Gary Dawson welcomed the opportunity to continue the strong working relationship with EY.

“Our partnership with EY is an important part of helping the Australian food, beverage and manufacturing industry to be world-class, sustainable, socially-responsible and competing profitably, both here in Australia and internationally.”

The sponsorship announced today complements the existing agreement for EY to deliver AFGC’s annual State of the Industry report, and includes EY-hosted events for AGFC members on key sector issues and the annual AFGC conference.
