What it takes to grow in the snack food and beverage markets EVERYONE’s on the go these days and the food industry is doing extremely well in keeping pace with consumer eating habits. On-to-go food products are not only growing in number but expanding in choice of ingredients and flavors, and packaging designs. And of course, consumers always prefer their snacks healthy and nutritious. In Dubai, one of the major producers of quality snacks is Hunter Foods Limited FZCO which has a wide range of popular brands and a very strong private label business. In boardroom connection, managing director Ananya Narayan speaks of the company as an innovator that steers clear of the beaten path. And that is leading to their continued success. In the beverage sector, soft drinks and bottled/mineral waters enjoy robust growth. In the GCC alone, the number of manufacturers rose from 231 in 2010 to 318 in 2014, according to the Gulf Organization for Industrial Consulting (GOIC). While in Africa, the soft drinks market continues to hold promise for beverage companies. The merging of Coca-Cola and SAB Miller beverage operations in the region last year is telling enough. How can smaller manufacturers of ready-to-drink products improve their chances in this burgeoning market? The DrinkTech Africa conference held on June 24 alongside Africa’s Big Seven provided attendees with clear-cut recommendations. The answers may not be new to you, but if you want to know what presenters from Distell, Oasis Water and many others had to say, then you can flip to page 9 for our special report.
