Supply Chain Risk Assessment : SpendEdge’s Risk Assessment Engagement for a Food Industry Client

Dec 28, 2018

Future of the Food Industry

Consumers’ demand for healthy ingredients, complex flavor profiles, and environmentally sustainable offerings has greatly shaped the food industry over the past five years. As these food industry trends have strongly established themselves among consumers, we can expect many more such trends to dominate the coming years as well. Even though there are a variety of opportunities for food industry companies in the coming years, staying on top of changing customer needs, understanding millennial preferences, leveraging new packaging techniques, and employing key technology and acquisition strategies will all be vital for survival in this competitive market. Hence, food industry companies need to be more innovative and customer-centric to win a competitive edge in the marketplace.
