Digital Day in the life of an Egg

Hosted by Morrisons

Are you ready to be eggcited? Learn about the digital journey of a Morrisons Egg and how our cutting edge ‘teggnology’ gets it from farm to feature.

Morrisons not only develops technology to support our retail and online sales, but is involved in all aspects of getting its products through manufacturing and supply chain to our customers.

This session showcases how many different types of technology supports that end to end supply chain for Eggs. From robotics, data science, AI driven forecasting and ordering to mobile applications and online platforms.

It all starts at the farm, where we are working with a local Yorkshire farm to source planet friendly eggs and the entire process is Carbon Neutral.

Then onto the eggcellent robotics that feature in our Chippendales site.

Let us help you unscramble some of the complexities behind the data science we use for our AI forecasting and ordering.

Hop onto one of our iconic green morrisons lorries and see how we track which eggs are destined for which store, and the systems used to maintain availability.

Finally, we’ll walk you through all the systems used in store and by our customers to complete the journey.

Join us for a cracking time learning how Morrisons technology facilitates the journey of one of our highest selling products ‘The egg’ from a sustainable farm to your fork.
