Change is the central force of the marketplace. Look around, change is coming at you from all directions and in all manners: rise of organizations targeting a variety of “niche” markets (e.g., via personalized nutrition) vs. targeting the mass market, proliferation of small premium brands, tech industry investing in food and beverage, the blurring of food retailing channels, organic and natural food and beverage on the uptick vs. lackluster performance of conventional food and beverage counterparts, diversification of procurement options (e.g., fresh format brick and mortar stores, downsizing the retail footprint, meal kit delivery, home delivery, subscriptions), and consumers’ ever-evolving lifestyles, preferences and aspirations. We could go on, but you get the picture.
