The food sector has always been susceptible to unpredictability and is fiercely contested. It is a sector where a company’s performance can fluctuate wildly based on various external influences. A one-off food scare, a change in strategy by a retail client or even Brexit can all have dramatic impacts on the bottom-line.

We surveyed 105 C-suite executives from leading food businesses to understand what their biggest issues and opportunities are, creating a picture of what the future of food will be. This report reveals an industry where some manufacturers face challenges ensuring their short-term survival, but these are far outnumbered by brilliantly innovative businesses that are finding new ways to drive long-term, sustainable growth.
