The second iteration of our UKUPC Market Insight Document, providing detail on what is happening in national and international supply chains, has been emailed to members today.

This version is longer, has more detail, and is formatted slightly differently taking into consideration the comments members shared with us last time.   

Once again, the information included has been gathered from our expert procurement teams across the UK; it also includes some links and information submitted by you, our members.  

We know that issues such as price increases are affecting many categories; there are news stories across the press, including this one in Supply Management magazine, which are taking into account what is happening now but also trying to predict the future.  

One of the benefits of being part of UKUPC is collaborative working, including the regular sharing of information and knowledge.  This is particularly useful in times of change and we encourage discussions with a variety of suppliers in order to take a broad view of the market. 

Should you have any queries or have not received a copy of the Market Insight document (members only), please contact Emma Keenan.
