  • To accommodate consumer’s growing penchant towards organic food, food and beverage companies are re-organizing their inventories to store more organic ingredients. Such organic ingredients are expensive and generally have shorter shelf-lives. This is increasing their inventory-related expenditure, which they are ultimately compensating by hiking the price of the end-products in the food and beverage industry.

In response to the industry trends, most food and beverage companies are restructuring their business models as well as their inventories,” says SpendEdge’s procurement expert Tridib Bora.

What strategies can you adopt to address these disruptive trends in the food and beverage industry?

  • Supply disruptions and volatilities in the price of raw materials create ample challenges for not only buyers but also for suppliers in the food and beverage industry. In this context, food and beverage companies are expected to maintain a secure, reliable, and high-quality sourcing and procurement process of raw materials. They must target the maximum possible efficiencies in operations and meet the new and emerging requirements of consumers.
  • Inadequate packaging and inefficient logistics have not only resulted in product recalls but have also tarnished the brand reputation of buyers in the food and beverage industry. Suppliers are expected to deliver under a fixed schedule with proper assistance and supervision during transit. This ensures that the functional attributes of the product remain intact. In the food and beverage industry, buyers must ensure that they partner with suppliers who adopt innovative packaging materials that facilitate the improvement of the shelf-life of products due to their anti-microbial and anti-moisture properties.
