Key Trends in Food & Drink

1

A More Demanding Consumer

Consumers want food that is good for them and good for society despite global trade tensions; locally-sourced, sustainably produced food, with trendy flavours and environmentally friendly packaging, at the right price. Industry leaders are responding by creating products that are good for the body, the environment and the community.

2

The Rise of Local (Farm to Counter)

A new generation of consumers wants natural, farm-fresh produce, without pesticides, direct from the farmer – who expects to be compensated fairly. As consumers, today’s generation is more vocal about demanding a fair farm-to-counter supply chain – and expects leaders and companies to innovate and, if needed, disrupt the status quo.

3

Transparency & Trust

Consumers are demanding increased transparency through the entire production value chain. They want to know the origin of their food and whether it was produced ethically. They expect full disclosure on ingredients, additives and the manufacturing process. Any leader in this field must be capable of creating value, influencing stakeholders and changing business processes.

4

Digital Revolution

Technology, artificial intelligence and big data are having a major impact on the food & drink sector. Tech-savvy leaders with vision are needed to help this sector achieve a circular economy, while managing changes that see farmers increasingly apply targeted approaches to reduce additives and chemicals required to grow produce.
