    harder to maintain Our view is we need to prepare for more of the same food concerns Staying on top of supply chain challenges means adapting faster and innovating sooner to the changes facing business and society Here are the ten biggest trends we re seeing in the food industry Globalisation of food supply chains More food is being traded across borders than ever before Businesses are hungry for growth and are looking to grow revenue in foreign markets Faced with razor thin margins companies are sourcing from low cost suppliers around the world Globalisation is increasing food safety and quality risks and is making traceability and control over supply chains more challenging Integration of supply chains As global food trade becomes subject to more regulations food companies are spending millions on the integration of their supply chains to improve safety and traceability At the same time governments are issuing policy and strategic announcements to encourage the integration of supply chains to assist in making improvements Scandals and increasing scrutiny High profile food safety and fraud scandals are triggering public health concerns and damaging consumer trust in the industry and governments around the world With the ubiquity of social media and increasing public interest a single lapse in quality control can quickly become a brand damaging global scandal Rising regulatory standards Governments such as China and the US are adopting more stringent food safety regulations in terms of quality standards supervision and sanctions This creates unprecedented compliance risk and additional costs for companies with operations suppliers or customers in multiple jurisdictions Shift in global economic power The growth of maturing economies is creating huge consumer markets where none existed before Consumption power is shifting to wealthier and newly urbanised middle classes across Asia Tastes are changing and the demand for food choice and quality is increasing More economies are moving up the value chain and becoming core consumer markets no longer core producers of cheap labour Technological and scientific breakthroughs Scientific advances are increasing our ability to detect hazards and identify risks New technologies such as on farm GPS mapping and DNA labelling are now commercially viable Along with data analytics these technologies can enable tighter controls along the entire length of the supply chain that will improve quality and efficiency Track and trace technologies are optimising the warehousing and ordering process and providing regulators and consumers with critical information Traceability is giving transparency into the origins and ingredients of food from farm to fork and enabling companies to execute fast targeted recalls Changing food demand Economic development and population growth are driving increases in overall food consumption while a growing middle class is demanding better quality and more variety Greater purchasing power has resulted in a significant increase in consumption of resource intensive protein products with significant implications for the environment and agriculture Demand for certain standards such as organic or halal is growing strongly Empowered consumers The internet gives consumers access to vast amounts of information about food

  • Predictions for 2016: G7 on steadier footing than the E7: PwC
    The US will continue to create an average of around 200 000 jobs per month helping to sustain consumer spending growth But the US won t have an easy run to the title of the fastest growing G7 economy The UK will be its main rival as we expect it to grow within the range of 2 2 5 see our separate predictions for the UK economy here US and UK interest rates to rise in 2016 In December last year the Fed led the way with its first rate increase since 2006 We expect it to continue to raise rates albeit gradually in 2016 Bar any major global accidents we expect the Bank of England to follow suit at some point during 2016 However a gradual tightening of monetary policy in the US could have wide global repercussions For example businesses and households with exposure to dollar denominated debt will come under pressure as dearer funding costs will impact their finances Economies such as Chile Turkey and Russia could be particularly impacted due to their relatively high levels of US dollar debt which stand at 37 25 and 24 of GDP respectively In contrast with the US and the UK we expect the European Central Bank the Bank of Japan and the People s Bank of China to maintain an accommodative monetary policy stance in 2016 The end of the Eurozone crisis The peripheral economies will grow faster than the core economies for the second year in a row see Figure 2 The Greek crisis could flare up again but this should not lead to contagion to the rest of the bloc which is why we think this year should mark the end of the wider Eurozone financial crisis With most imbalances in peripheral economies under control and structural reforms underway such as Spanish legislation on promoting corporate financing we think that Eurozone GDP will expand by around 1 6 in 2016 its fastest growth rate since 2011 This pick up in growth will be accompanied by businesses hiring more workers As such we expect the total number of unemployed people in the Eurozone to drop below 17 million during 2016 its lowest level since 2011 Close India will be the star performer amongst the E7 For the second year in a row we expect India to grow faster than China expanding by around 7 7 in real terms India will continue to reap the benefits of recent reforms The cut in the policy rate by the Central Bank of India from 8 to 6 75 last year will help to support consumption and investment growth this year Foreign direct investment in India s underdeveloped manufacturing sector should also pick up as foreign investment caps have mostly been lifted Chinese GDP growth will ease to 6 5 China s economic slowdown looks set to continue with rebalancing now underway Growth in manufacturing and exports will continue to slow gradually However Chinese business leaders will continue to move into higher
