Reuters signs knowledge partner deal with Food Industry Asia


The partnership comes at a time when managing one’s supply chain is becoming increasingly difficult. Critical decisions need to be made at speed, and disruptions or negative impacts at any point of the process can significantly affect production, distribution and costs, as well as an organisation’s reputation. 

“Thomson Reuters is excited to join the efforts of FIA to bring innovative ideas and capabilities to the Asian food industry and its thought leaders. Our commitment to the global food & beverage community, through our technology, trusted intelligence and analytics, supports more efficient, safe and sustainable supply chains by addressing price, supply, and supplier risk. We look forward to the mutually beneficial engagements that this partnership will allow us to participate in and lead,” said Jeff Haas, Global Head of Agriculture, Food & Beverage, Supply Chain & Commodities, at Thomson Reuters.

Matt Kovac, Executive Director at FIA, said, “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Thomson Reuters, a world-class authority on intelligence for businesses across a spectrum of sectors that include news media and risk management.”

He added, “I look forward to a collaboration that will bring about vital, pertinent thought leadership relating to the food industry in the region.”
