2 Pressures driving food consolidation

In the next two to three years, we anticipate an unprecedented level of consolidation in the UK food and drinks industry. By consolidation, we mean the process by which the number of companies operating in a segment is reduced. 

Inevitably, these forces will impact on some segments more than others. In particular, we believe the following four sectors will feel the impact particularly heavily:
1 Meat, fish and poultry
2 Fruit and vegetables
3 Processed foods
4 Specialist soft drinks

 

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF FOOD CONSOLIDATION

In 2006 food consolidation was published  to stimulate discussion and strategic thinking  which might help our clients and others in the food industry to position their businesses in order to take advantage of the market trend towards food consolidation.

In an industry where four retailers control nearly 80% of UK sales and the basic market size as measured in calories is essentially static, consolidation has been inevitable – especially taking into account the ever-changing pattern of consumer demand. As a direct result, the dilemma of food manufacturers has been how to survive and grow in an environment where the customer is
continually demanding price reductions.
