Experts Forecast How to Succeed In Future Food and Beverage Sector
by Antonio Pasolini
The recent years have seen a major shift in people's relationship with food and drink, which have acquired a much more funcional role in our lives. Like in other sectors, data is key and the public want as much information as possible to make a purchasing decision. For that reason, the food and beverage industries have to adapt to cater to new demands and needs, lest they could fall lag behind.
These new trends and patterns were a big topic at the recent WorldView event in New York City, where industry leaders gave attendees an overview of the current landscape and how industry should respond and adapt.
One of the key themes is transparency as customers want to know just what is in the product they buy, their provenance as well as social and environmental impact. This requires a massive shift in the value chain. Companies must provide all this information and really do what they say they are doing as customers are weary of greenwashing.
