Consumers are fickle, and no one understands this better than food & beverage manufacturers. The degree of change in this industry continues to rise. Whether it’s increased demand for organic and locally sourced products or a trend toward avoiding processed foods, the ability to respond quickly and get items on the shelves faster than your competitors is essential.

For F&B manufacturers, technology can be friend or foe. ERP systems that were implemented years (and often decades) ago can no longer support the complex demands of this industry. Keeping current isn’t just smart—it’s profitable. From cloud computing and collaborative technologies to mobility and analytics, technology holds the key to competitive advantage and growth.

More and more F&B companies are pursuing microvertical strategies and for good reasons—the potential for higher profits, greater opportunities to offer unique products, and the ability to build stronger customer relationships, to name a few. The goal is to go big by growing small. However, each microvertical is unique and requires both processes and supporting systems that allow F&B manufacturers to operate efficiently and profitably in these highly specialized markets.

Few industries must deal with regulations as complex as those of the F&B industry. Requirements are rigorous and the risks associated with failure high. Manual processes are simply no longer a viable option for keeping up with the pace of change. The good news is that there are more tools and technologies available for making this process manageable than ever before.

Margin pressure on F&B manufacturers has never been greater. Consumer demands for convenience, affordability, and personalization are growing, while regulations are becoming more complex and costs are rising. Best-in-class planning and forecasting, adaptability, and supply chain visibility hold the key to protecting both customer loyalty and profits.

Speed is the name of the game. To be competitive, process manufacturers have to develop new products quickly, produce them using the best possible formula, and maintain full compliance with all regulatory requirements. It's a unique set of requirements that demands a tailored approach to product lifecycle and supply chain management.
