Looking out to 2050 what are some of the mega-trends that will impact on our food and beverage landscape as growers, processors, manufacturers and marketers of consumer packaged goods.
Global population growth past 9b by 2050 combined with increased urbanisation, changing diet patterns in the developing world and water shortages and climate change will impact detrimentally on food supply and exacerbate demand for protein and sugar and other soft commodities.
Food manufacturers will continue to consolidate as they attempt to extract efficiency from farm to shelf and retailers will grow globally, albeit with greater changes due to localisation challenges in global retail.
Fonterra case study on how an integrated supply chain from farm to shelf has increased returns to shareholder returns from cow to shelf using highly segmented nutritional products marketed to life stage needs segments.
Guest lecture to International Business students on global food challenge and opportunity for Australian International Food Businesses including a case study on Berri Indonesia.
The future is “uncertain” and certain
By 2050 9.5 billion of us will be hungry! However, by 2030 2 billion of us will be overweight and 1 billion obese.
Consolidation of manufacturers and retailers will continue at faster rates.
Expect a significant step up from the competition in your home market when you go international.
