Emphasis is on "adjusting" and "adapting" – actions that companies are working on in varying degrees to survive the current situation. It's tough that these require new strategies and investments, maybe even a change of culture within an organisation – or within the industry, and even in the way companies, associations, and governments work together. But it is all part of demonstrating one's level of resilience – the strength that will carry you through the future, or as McKinsey calls it, the next normal.
For this issue of FoodPacific Manufacturing Journal, we asked manufacturers in the ingredients, packaging, processing, and automation sectors, about the situation in their industry and their insights for this year and beyond. We talked to Puratos, Kerry, Beneo, Glory Charm, Körber, Korutek, Syntegon, to name a few. We share trend reports from ADM, Friesland, and other ingredients companies as well as prediction from S2G Ventures and Accenture. All their insights prove how necessary it is for them to be both flexible and agile, and especially open to change, and how they are helping their customers be the same in order to meet changing consumer behaviour.
Yes, trends come and go, but the ones that are here to stay have to do with good nutrition, healthy but delicious formulations, sustainable sources of ingredients as well as packaging, better processing technologies, upcycling, and other Earth-friendly practices to reduce food waste.
