Food and Drink

With food and drink, it’s not just customer tastes that are constantly changing. The food and drink sector is a dynamic and complex business environment. That’s why it makes sense to have extra expertise you can rely on.

A world of familiar challenges

Labour shortages require investment in smarter production and delivery methods. Volatility in the cost of raw materials makes costs and supply chains hard to control, yet it can be difficult to increase product prices while retaining market share. Consolidation among retailers, along with consumer movement to lower-cost options, puts further pressure on margins.

New opportunities

You have to work out the best way to welcome new opportunities – from robotics and smart mechnisation to blockchain – while still keeping a firm grasp on every existing process, from manufacturing to branding.

And increasing responsibilities

Regulators are taking ever greater interest, increasing scrutiny, altering regulations and adding new responsibilities. Meanwhile, consumers trust you to deliver products that are safe but will have their social media accounts to hand if they feel you have failed to measure up.

You want to do the right thing for the environment, for your people and customers, and want to play your part in improving health and nutrition.
