Business Continuity Management: Principles and Lessons Learned from the Benzonase® Success Story


Business continuity management is a key success contributor to the pharma industry. As an industry leader, we will share our business continuity plan principles for a safe and robust supply chain. As an example, we will discuss the Benzonase® BCP and safety-stock build-up strategy from 2019-2023. During Covid-19, more than 2 Billion vaccine doses were manufactured using this product family. This would not have been possible without a multi-year planning strategy. 

We'll describe why this product has one of the strongest supply chains in the industry.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Key principles of Business Continuity Management
  • Best practices for a robust supply chain
  • How it translates into success stories, like with the Benzonase® family.
