Phylum works with companies in the food industry from upstream to downstream. Its knowledge of the specificities of the food industry, and in particular, the interfaces with upstream agriculture, enables it to bring its expertise by combining the strategic stakes and the sanitary and quality requirements of the markets.

• Strategies for the development of food chains. Phylum carries out feasibility studies for the animal sector in emerging countries, as well as policies to strengthen sourcing from upstream agriculture, or to develop differentiated products (AB, AOP, IGP...).

• Prevention and management of food safety risks ranging from strengthening food safety management systems to supporting the management of health incidents or crises.

Support mission in crisis management

On September 26, 2019, the Lubrizol chemical plant was the victim of a serious fire with a significant fume emanation with a risk of pollution under the cloud of fumes. In the days that followed, an agri-food group present in the region called on Phylum to assist it in defining the measures to be implemented to assess and manage the risk with its suppliers, while limiting the impact on its activity and by ensuring the safety of products, both in the short and medium term.
