New call-to-action

For petfood processors, three big market trends bring new opportunities

Petfood processors will have to respond to significant new market trends. The desires and demands of petfood buyers are shifting, and this means that many petfood producers will change what they’re asking processors for. A quick look at the three biggest sales trends reveals why and how.

Meeting the many tough new challenges in nut processing

Because so much is changing so quickly, nut processors face more challenges today than ever before. Some will have to modernize their working practices and technologies in order to survive. Others, by making best use of technologies, will turn the challenges into opportunities and thrive.

Five big trends nut processors can profit from

Businesses that stand still get left behind. This is especially true today in nut processing. Sticking for too long with the same old working practices and machines is standing still. Not getting left behind requires awareness of latest processing technologies and market trends. But which trends are here to stay, and how can processors profit from them, either now or in the near-future?

Interesting, challenging times for the nut industry

With endless information streaming into our lives and new actions being taken around the COVID-19 virus every day, it has many of us, including myself, asking the question: What now? How do I keep my business operating? How do I protect the health and safety of my employees? How long is this going to last? Can I get a refund on my U2 concert tickets?

Looking Towards a More Connected Food Industry

How Digitalization of the supply chain will reduce global Food Waste

The scale of the global food waste problem is staggering. According to reports, 1.6 billion tons of food are lost or wasted every year, equating to a total value of $1.2 trillion being wiped from the supply chain. With one-third of the total amount of food produced globally being misused, the industry needs to look towards innovation and digitalization to combat this ever-growing trend.
