GMA Manufacturing Excellence Conference co-located with Pack Expo

Manufacturing excellence in today’s food, beverage and consumer products companies is being driven by many factors, including product safety, sustainability, globalization, consumer demands, technology and heightened competition for resources. But just exactly how are these drivers impacting manufacturing and who is driving them deep into the operations of the leading CPG manufacturers? Visionary leaders, that’s who.

In this keynote address at the Grocery Manufacturers Association’s (GMA) Manufacturing Excellence Conference Nov. 1-2 at Pack Expo in Chicago, hear from an industry leader, Alan D. Wilson, president and chief executive officer of McCormick & Co., who turns vision into action and drives quality and excellence in manufacturing through the entire organization – all the way from the top down to the feet on the ground.

Pamela Bailey, GMA’s president and chief executive officer, says Pack Expo is a critical component for GMA members planning and implementing business strategies.

“GMA member companies have long valued Pack Expo as an important annual forum where they can gather with supply chain partners, garner key insights and learn about emerging trends from their counterparts upstream.  With a focus on product safety, sustainability and operational integrity – critical issues for GMA and PMMI members - we are thrilled to launch the inaugural GMA Manufacturing Excellence Conference at this year’s Pack Expo,” she says.
