Chris Tyas OBE

GS1 UK Management Board, Chair
Retail Plenary, Tuesday, 2 March, 12:00-12:50 CET


In March 2020, at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Chris was asked to by the UK Government to chair the Food Resilience Industry Forum (FRIF) bringing together all parts of the Agrifood supply chain including retailers, manufacturers, logistics providers and growers to ensure that food security and consumer needs were proactively addressed. This work is a perfect example of how collaboration can resolve industry challenges at pace in order to protect consumers. The forum continues to provide industry intelligence both nationally and globally to the DEFRA leadership and has now increased its scope to include the challenges of Brexit.

The role of GS1 UK chair was of particular interest to him as he wished to bring to fruition their purpose of harnessing the power of standards to transform the way people work and live.
