Dave Food

Head of Supply Chain, Board International

Dave has spent over 30 years working with supply chain solutions with time at a range of solution providers, generally at the strategic end of the product use and design, always looking to tell a story and make a difference.


Dave currently heads up Supply Chain within Board International, developing tomorrow's thinking for decision support platforms with advanced intelligent analytics that enable Supply Chain Executives to make informed, effective decisions for Supply Chain empowered businesses


He has been providing future insight on Supply Chain strategy, systems, and solution usage, enabling Supply Chain Change and team process improvement. He is particularly interested in how companies can become disruptive by leveraging emerging technologies and approaches.


For me, every day is full, full of opportunity, full of potential, full of choices. Typically shared with others who are looking to understand better, gain clarity and insight and make choices that will make a difference to their teams, their businesses, or their supply chains.


I find the accelerated pace of change is like kite flying; you must be sensitive to the wind and catch the next gust to take you higher. The privilege of helping supply chain teams to understand better and strategize more clearly is both an ah-ha moment for me but also for all those involved.

Please ask me because if I cannot help you, I know someone who can.

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”

  • '' It was a good show and quality is always better than a high number of tyres kickers . We have engaged with two potential customers with live projects that at this point are looking promising hence committing to IWLEX24.''

  • "At 51T we are really excited to be part of the inaugural Inside Warehouse Logistics exhibition. Having exhibited at other events we felt it was time for something new, in particular the original idea of having the industry shape the event. We're looking forward to meeting a new group of buyers and becoming part of the new IWLEX community."
