In a world challenged by climate change, economic disparities, and geopolitical complexities, ensuring the stability of the global food supply chain is of utmost importance. Transforming food systems to make them more resilient and inclusive, and leveraging them as engines of economic growth and prosperity for all, is at the heart of this critical endeavour. DP World’s global supply chain operations play a vital role in supporting these goals, aligning with the UAE’s vision to establish itself as a leading innovation and food supplies trading hub.

The session, in partnership with The Global FoodBanking Network and DP World, will introduce how supply chains, from ports and economic zones, to packing houses and markets, and across the distribution infrastructure that brings food into people’s homes, can be leveraged to solve a myriad of food system challenges. Panelists will explore how they are mitigating supply chain disruptions, protecting vulnerable communities, promoting international trade partnerships, and collaborating to enhance food security on a global scale.
