Food & Beverage

The food & beverage industry specializes in the conceptualization, making of and delivery of foods. The food industry is a complex, global collective of diverse businesses that supply much of the food energy consumed by the world’s population. Beverage processing includes soft drinks and bottled water manufacturing, wineries, breweries and distilleries. Within food & beverage markets, better management of batch processing is needed as food distribution channels have become more complex. In addition to wholesalers, grocers and food-service providers, manufacturers see new customers in alternative retail formats and the tremendous growth in private-label goods. Their challenge is maintaining product consistency amidst increasing variation in raw ingredients, recipes and packaging.
