Whilst every industry experienced a degree of disruption following the pandemic, the food and beverage sector was possibly the most severely impacted. Supply chain disruptions, commodity cost increases along with long term changes in consumer behaviours and demand, with the 'digital shelf' becoming increasingly important, as well as DTC, have all been challenges the industry is having to navigate.
In addition, food & beverage companies have been struggling with talent shortages at all levels. It was challenge that was evident pre-pandemic but has now been further exacerbated.
