M&A Consulting Food and Beverage Industry

The food and beverage market includes fresh, prepared, or packaged food as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Functionally, we subsume the production, packaging, and distribution to the end consumer.

The industry is characterised on the one hand by large internationally operating companies that offer their brands and products globally, and on the other hand by medium-sized niche specialists and local players. 

The industry is innovative and offers start-ups opportunities to pick up on new consumer trends and manufacturing technologies. The trend towards digitalisation, the ongoing change in lifestyles and tastes as well as increased requirements around sustainability (keyword: ESG) require constant adjustments of business strategies. 

The main drivers of M&A activities are the desire to realise economies of scale and volume, the optimisation of the portfolio, and the securing of strategic resources and know-how.
