Food & Agri

Successful business in a changing food chain

The current food system is becoming ecologically, socially and economically stagnant. The effects are felt throughout the chain. The need for change is great and driven by ever new innovations and competitors.

We help food companies become future-proof within this complexity. This means making plans and realizing breakthroughs in response to existing and new challenges:

  • Increasing pressure on margins influenced by scarcity of raw materials, energy and labor places new demands on operational excellence.
  • Emergence of new technology with new opportunities in automation and robotization, requires a sharp vision of network and operation.
  • Growing complexity due to customer demand, laws and regulations and sustainability requires sharp choices in portfolio and activities.
  • Dependencies and uncertainties within the supply chain again put supply chain strategy high on the priority list.
  • Above all, however, it is important to keep innovating: faster, smarter and with all chain partners. How do you do this and make sure it also leads to earning capacity.

Typical challenges where entrepreneurship and professionalization come together. In this, we are the partner who makes the difference with substantive expertise, sector knowledge and execution power.

Gwynt regularly organizes Gamechangerz in Food events focused on current topics within Food. Meetings where we offer participants the opportunity to come to new insights, network and learn from each other from real-world experience.
