As a family-owned company, social responsibility is a core value to NFI.
CHERRY HILL, N.J. (PRWEB) January 22, 2018
David Broering, President of Integrated Solutions at NFI, will speak at the Food Rescue Summit on January 24 in Washington, D.C. The panel session, titled “Eliminating the Distribution Bottleneck,” will explore ways in which businesses can work together to overcome transportation challenges in rescuing and distributing food. The breakout session will also focus on areas such as network optimization and backhaul fill, as well as collaboration with for-profit partners for mutual benefit.
Hosted by Feeding America, the goal of the event is to foster collaboration with industry partners and organizations that want to help ensure that any safe, wholesome yet unsellable food is used to feed people before being considered for alternatives.
“As a family-owned company, social responsibility is a core value to NFI,” said Broering. “It’s vital that we band together to overcome food rescue challenges, as food alone won’t solve hunger. Multiple changes must happen on a systemic level within the food waste reduction cycle, with transportation playing an integral role.”
With extensive experience within a variety of sectors such as grocery chains, bakeries, and food processors, NFI has continually expanded its capabilities and expertise within the food and beverage industry. This experience and knowledge has enabled the supply chain solutions provider to become a leading 3PL whose integrated suite of services spans dedicated transportation, distribution, brokerage, transportation management, drayage, intermodal, global logistics, and real estate.
