F&B Industry Key Challenges
Do you know 30 percent of the profits from products are gained in the first year of operation? That’s why you need to continually launch new products to remain relevant, attract consumers, and secure shelf space.
When it comes to the F&B industry, many ingredients are seasonal, whereas they are only available at select times of the year and the high perishability result in limited shelf life. Similar to ingredients, finished products also face the same. For example, to meet the demand for turkeys for Christmas/ Thanksgiving, the supply should be planned and built to stock to meet market demand without shortfalls. On the other hand, promotions create demand spikes that are difficult to forecast and plan for. So, to provide excellent service by delivering what customer wants, there should be a great level of operational excellence with having streamlined processes between different functional areas.
Quality and compliance
Poor quality is the reflection of penalties/chargebacks/ law suites and dissatisfied consumers. Having to recall products that are already released to the market is the worst situation as it damages your goodwill. F&B industry is very sensitive to quality as it’s directly impacting public health. You will have to adhere to food safety regulations and standards which are compulsory. If you are looking to enter the global market, it is much broader, whereas you will have to comply will global regulations and standards too. In addition to that, you need to ensure financial compliance.
Raw material, labour and energy costs are on the rise, and it will directly impact margins. In this tight margin industry, a small change in the yield results in an exponential drop in profits. On the other hand, price pressures also squeeze margins. Therefore, it’s essential to manage costs and margins closely.
