CPL’s strategy consultants can help you understand the commercial and technical nuances of the food ingredients industry. We can advise you on the best strategy for your business to follow.
The food ingredient sector has seen some rapid changes in recent years. For example, this includes changes in the way ingredients are manufactured, side streams valorised, and ingredients sold.
The drivers behind these include consumer preferences, e.g. in clean-label ingredients, plant-based foods and alternative proteins. There have also been significant technical advances e.g. in fermentation.
There has been significant change in some parts of the ingredients business. However, in more conservative parts of the industry change is incremental.
Also, some of the ‘new’ trends are far from new. Re-badging and re-positioning of existing ingredients can give the appearance of larger markets and higher growth than is actually the case.
