Wine Industry 4.0 - New Defence Technologies for the Italian Wine Sector to Support Brand Protection to be held on 9th March 2018, Eataly Milano Smeraldo Conference Hall, Piazza Venticinque Aprile, 10, Milan, Italy.

The event will feature a wide range of interesting presentations on the very latest new technical enhancements and systems that are available today to help the Italian Wine Sector. Although wine quality has long been of critical importance for wine producing companies across the Food & Beverage (F&B) supply chain, today’s legislative bodies as well as consumers are only increasing focus on it. Adulterated products making their way into the food supply are driving the need for more accountability and ownership of the quality of products and processes. Compounding these pressures, with the viral nature of today’s global environment, even a minuscule adverse event can have disproportionate backlash on branding, reputation, and profitability.

To better manage the risk of quality issues occurring across the wine supply chain, key thought leaders are sharing their insights and knowledge at this event in order for companies to refine approaches to brand protection, to infuse a holistic perspective underpinned by new technology initiatives.

The high value of wine also provides motivation for sellers to undertake potentially unscrupulous methods of improving wine characteristics, such as chaptalisation and the addition of dyes. Through effective proficiency testing programmes, your ability to highlight the presence of these quality issues is maintained, and in some cases improved.
