The bakery industry has risen to them all, but now is the time to take a strategic overview of the head winds. Discussing and addressing the issues collectively, will help secure the wider bakery industry in a long-term standing to better manage the issues, including sustainability, labour markets, consumer behaviours, supply chains, and government regulations."
