The food value chain
A challenge for the next century
This document sets out the premise that the food industry, throughout the value chain, has a tremendous opportunity, as well as an obligation, to meet the needs of new, more sophisticated and more demanding consumers while satisfying shareholders’ demands for returns—and in doing so creating a sustainable food supply for the new millennium.
The report addresses stakeholders across the value chain: producers, primary and value-added processors, retailers and distributors, consumers, and governments/NGOs/regulators. As the world’s largest advisory organization, with a large number of staff and clients in the food sector, Deloitte member firms are committed to helping those in the food value chain achieve this vision. We hope you find this report compelling.
