The Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain recognizes influential individuals in the industry whose achievements, hard work, and vision have shaped and attained milestones in safety, efficiency, productivity, and innovation through the global food supply chain. From early pioneers and entrepreneurs to non-conformist thinkers and executive standouts, this award aims to honor these leaders and their contributions to our industry.


“Our 2019 Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain reflects the expanding diversity that is emerging in our industry, both in terms of demographics and talent,” remarks Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director, Food Logistics. “The combination of experience and wisdom complemented with a new generation of professionals is resulting in a food and beverage supply chain that is in sync with consumers’ demands while simultaneously adept and staying ahead of the logistical requirements.”


“Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with numerous food companies, and I have observed that there are many things that these businesses have in common in running their daily operations, in addition to having their own uniqueness,” said Gary Barter, project director, food division, VAI. “Having a flexible ERP system in place such as S2K Enterprise for Food can go a long way in ensuring a company succeeds and thrives well ahead of the competition. We work in close partnership with our customers long after implementation, hand-in-hand, to ensure we are moving forward together with technology leading the way.”
