How does the food get on our tables is taken for granted, we do not think about all the numerous processes or tasks manufacturers go through to allow us to walk into a grocery store and buy as we wish.
Fremont, CA : While walking down the snack aisle of a grocery store, a variety of chip flavors ranging from salty to sweet to spicy are seen. This explosion f new flavors, variations, and varieties of food and beverage products are great for consumers. The consumers today focus more on food processors rather than just making food available. They want innovative, new, healthy, cost-effective, and environmentally neutral products. These demands act as a driving factor for the food processing industry to adapt and implement changes to stay relevant and competitive. But with 80 percent of the food and beverage processors producing 100+ SKUs, also known as “SKU-mageddon,” it needs a challenging move toward de-specialization that creates substantial issues and significant risks.
It is very evident that de-specialization is the enemy of productivity; here are some of the major challenges.
In order to deal with these challenges, there are few key areas to focus on for a proactive, risk-based approach to be ready for the SKU-mageddon.
The SKU-mageddon is accelerating day-by-day; in fact, launching new products is currently the top growth strategy in the food and beverage industry. But with the challenges of de-specialization sometimes seems overwhelming, the truth is that the leading processors are not dealing with SKU-mageddon alone. They get along with a third-party vendor to deal with a specific pain point, and formulate proactive strategies, to manage the challenges of de-specialization.
The food and beverage industry is continuously trying to stay at par with the demands of a changing consumer world. With an increase in regulations and changing trends in the market, it is easy to keep sanitation, cleaning, and maintenance on the back seat and deal with the time-sensitive issues first.
