The effects of the downturn on the food and beverage industry

Food & Beverage industry

At first glance, companies in the food and beverage industry seem to be immune to the current economic downturn. Food and beverage are and will continue to be primary necessities of life. Nevertheless, consumer spend patterns are dropping due to declining consumer confidence in the economy. Shifts towards cheaper products and substitutes are now a fact. Some big retail corporations have already reported declining revenues, which consequently have an effect on the entire value chain. On top of this, credit lines are also under pressure.

The root causes can be identified fairly quickly, but creative solutions to thrive through this economic downturn are more of a challenge and require more knowledge and expertise.

How can your company use the economic downturn, gaining competitive advantages and eventually increase market share? Which strategies and tactics can help to overcome an economic storm?
