Hello and welcome to the April edition of FDF World magazine.

In a digital age saturated with data and information, transparency has emerged as the must-have ingredient for any successful food retailer.

In our cover story this month, Susan Welch, CEO of Bamboo Rose, tells us how food retailers are tapping into advanced end-to-end solutions to increase transparency throughout even the most intricate supply chains.

Delving into the sector’s most trailblazing technologies, we also speak to ABB’s Global Marketing & Portfolio Manager, Tatjana Milenovic, to see how the firm is pioneering an unbroken cold chain from power supply and storage, right through to logistics.

Looking to the UK, we also put the spotlight on the mushrooming carbonated drinks market, where Ahmed Elfafifi Founder and Chief Relaxation Officer at drink company Tranquini is entering the fray with a new soft drink company, and a whole new drinks category.

Whilst energy drinks may have saturated the market, we speak to Elfafifi to see how his relaxation drinks are going to flip the industry on its head.

As always, sustainability has dominated the headlines and as the drinks market continues to carve out green action plans, we look at some businesses that are taking a step in the right direction.

Next, with the global chocolate market worth projected to increase to $137.12bn by 2020, we scour the globe to find the top 10 cocoa producing countries in the world. 

On top of this, we’ll round off with a look at the top industry events across the globe.

Enjoy the issue!
