Serving solutions for the food and beverage industry
Challenges abound in the food and beverage industry, whether it's changing demographics, food safety, cost control, sustainability or demand for locally sourced items. Grant Thornton LLP's Food and Beverage team works with food and beverage manufacturers, distributors and retailers, delivering solutions designed to promote growth and create value. Whether it's restructuring and reorganization, process improvement, supply chain management, M&A, or tax and audit, we help food and beverage companies address issues such as:
- Actionable data - leading companies are using data to predict consumer behavior, find profitable market niches and streamline operations.
- Sustainability - consumers and stakeholders demand sustainability like never before. Companies that fail to treat sustainability as a core growth strategy will soon be left behind.
- New regulations - from new food safety rules to unprecedented labeling requirements, more government control means you may need to change how you conduct business.
- Globalization - going global comes at a cost; it's critical to consider local regulations, food safety, tax implications and cultural differences.
