Through effective procurement analysis, we have come to recognize the unique procurement challenges that the food industry is currently facing. Such procurement pain points include fluctuating supply chain pricing and maintaining the food product’s quality, freshness, and safety. Our well-structured procurement intelligence services allow food companies to control and effectively manage their expanding and increasingly complex global supply chains to procure better services for effective business decision making and competitive advantage.
Price volatility, security of supply, and related risks pose significant challenges for beverage manufacturers.
