Pi Day Sales! Will the supply chain meet the demand?

Today is Pi Day, and while the origin of the name needs a bit of mathematical knowledge, you don’t have to be a scientist to be aware of the deals on pizzas, sandwiches, and other types of food. Pies, mac & cheese, and hamburgers will cost $3.14 across the United States. 

For those who are unfamiliar with the holiday’s beginnings, the coincidences go beyond the numerical match between the date and the number (3.14). On this day in 1879, Albert Einstein was born, and also in 2018, Stephen Hawking died.

Following the trend in global commerce, sales are moving beyond physical storefronts and into customers’ homes via apps. Sales are available in both the companies’ private applications and on mainstream platforms. 

The link between the supply chain and Pi Day 

The food industry’s supply chain must always be interconnected and carefully planned, and it must always rely on technological advancement. Have you ever thought about how many different producers it takes to make a nice pizza? And what about a hamburger? 

From the farm to the table, assembling two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, and onions on a sesame-seed bun is a lot of work. To ensure food safety and culinary quality, travel time and storage must be under control. End-to-end supply chain visibility is necessary for this. 

Consider days with unusual demand; in addition to all the technology, you’ll need a lot of planning and dependable predictions. Forecasts must now consider the number of covid cases, the price of the product, inflation, and a variety of other variables.
