On Thursday 22 November, for the first time, we’re live streaming two of the core parts of our annual IGD (Institute of Grocery Distribution) Trade Briefing. That means our small suppliers, NISA colleagues down in Scunthorpe and colleagues right across the Food business can tune-in who mightn’t have got the chance to attend. This isn’t only a first for us in the Co-op but an industry first too, made possible by the great relationship we have with our charity partners at IGD.
The IGD Co-op Trade Briefing is our annual download to the Food supplier base. It’s our supplier partners’ chance to hear directly from our Co-op Food leaders, mingle with them and ask any burning questions they have. This year our theme is ‘Succeeding Together’, focusing on what we’ve achieved with suppliers this year and how win we’ll collaboratively in the future.
We know that our colleagues at Co-op never like to miss a chance to hear from our Food leaders, that’s why we’re making sure as many colleagues get to see the event as possible. Whether you’re based in Food, Funeralcare, Insurance or any of our other business areas, I hope there’ll be something of interest to you. Here’s how you can catch the event:
