The 2022-2023 edition of the Food&Beverage Community of Ambrosetti Club ended on June 10, 2023 with a Forum: "La Roadmap del futuro per il Food&Beverage: quali evoluzioni e quali sfide per i prossimi anni" ("The Roadmap for the future of F&B: evolution and future challenges"). The event had round tables and meaningful meetings with the sector's business leaders and the most relevant institutions, to discuss the strategic role of the agri-food chain in terms of resilience and competitiveness for Italy within a complex context.
We commented on the scenario and changes that have been affecting Italy's Food&Beverage sector, also in view of the impacts of the Russia-Ukraine conflict (increased cost of energy and raw materials, decreased purchasing power of households, Italian Sounding, climate change, social and economic sustainability...).
The role of the agri-food sector in boosting Italy's competitiveness was covered in terms of employment, Value Added, internationalisation, and Italian leadership, with a focus on some key aspects, such as nutrition, health, sports, and sustainability.
During the event, we also presented the updated versions of three studies that were published during the 2022 edition:
- Food&Beverage's future roadmap: developments and challenges in the upcoming years
- Italian sounding: how much it is worth and how to turn it into Made in Italy export
- The sustainable (R)evolution of the Italian agri-food chain
and three new case studies:
- The flavour of creativity: Ferrari Formaggi, among tradition and innovation
- The olive oil sector and sustainable development. Monini Group’s commitment to the territory
- Family businesses and managerialisation. Preserving traditions while looking at the future: the case of Witor's
