SpendEdge’s Spend Analysis Helps a Renowned Food Supplier Achieve Substantial Savings by 30%

Feb 16, 2018

Overview of the Food Industry

In the recent years, the food industry is witnessing a moderate growth due to which prominent food companies are planning to restructure and align their activities to lower costs and enhance profits. With altering preferences of the customers, major food suppliers are facing hardships to ensure safety and quality in the products offered. To retain the quality and ensure consistency in the product offerings, global food producers are entering into mergers and acquisitions to gain prominent market share, improve their product lines, and strengthen their position in the market. The industry is also expected to witness additional growth from the overseas market through exports.

Here are some of the factors that may influence the growth of the food industry.

  • Slow product innovation cycles: The food industry is greatly influenced by innovations to market new products with the emerging customer trends. So, it becomes essential for players to offer relevant products through R&D, and market those products through innovative labeling and packaging techniques.
  • The anti-sugar movement: Recently, organizations like WHO and FDA are countering against high sugar intake. With the growing compliance requirements, prominent food manufacturers are facing challenges to curtail the addition of artificial sweeteners and other ingredients in their product offerings.request free proposal
