Wholesale Distribution Outlook: Your World is Changing

Posted by Harriet Schneider on May 18, 2017 4:37:47 PM

Over the last few years, much has happened in the historically conservative wholesale distribution industry. Distributors are realizing that what drove their success in the past is not necessarily going to drive their success going forward.

The rise of social collaboration, the explosion of mobile devices, and other technological trends are reshaping the industry as we know it.

You must continually take a fresh approach to your business as you introduce new products, manage suppliers around the globe, and quickly respond to competitive activity.

Guide to Food & Beverage: An Industry Outlook

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Apr 27, 2017 7:56:24 PM

Consumers today are more educated than ever, and that knowledge makes them far more demanding about what they purchase. They’re paying closer attention to labels, showing a growing preference for fresher products, and seeking information about the origin of those products.

According to Deloitte, “Empowered by the democratization of information, and the influence and reach of new media, many consumers are taking control of the conversation about food and beverages.” In addition to this added consumer pressure, food & beverage manufacturers are also under increasing regulatory constraints. A BMI Research study states, “Governments are adopting increasingly stringent food labeling laws, broadening their scope from nutritional content to country-of-origin or animal welfare considerations, which will be a key issue for the agribusiness and food and drink sectors.”

This environment provided a brief window of opportunity to consider the role new “disruptive” technologies might have on manufacturing businesses and to discuss potential investment strategies.

In addition to contributing to the hype surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT), experts called for continued digitalization and smarter manufacturing, shifting to customer-centric operations, adoption of mobile and social platforms, and, of course, cloud deployment.
