We are pleased to invite you to “The Road Map of the Future for Food & Beverage: Changes and Challenges in the Years to Come” which, as part of the activities of the Ambrosetti Club, represents the culmination of the work undertaken in 2019 by the Food&Beverage community, a platform in which to reflect on sector-related issues and which was created three years ago with the goal of examining and divulging the key issues and experiences affecting companies in this sector.

Despite the uncertainty in the macroeconomic scenario, in recent years, the food sector has demonstrated significant energy and resilience, confirming that it is a key economic supply chain for the Italian economy. The Italian Food & Beverage sector is a basic asset for the country. Food product manufacture and processing currently employs more than 467,000 people in over 56,000 companies, with a total turnover of 140 billion euros. The agrifood sector generates 61 billion euros in value added, three times that of the French and Spanish automotive sectors and more than double the French, German and UK aerospace sectors taken together.

During the forum, the following themes have been discussed:

  • Scenarios and changes in the sector in the coming years, the attractiveness of Food&Beverage companies and the obstacles to growth;
  • The experiences of two international retail giants and examination of the relationship between Industry and Distribution and the tremendous challenge to be faced together in the coming years; how to meet the changing habits of consumers and new eating habits in a timely fashion by implementing flexible strategies capable of adapting to change;
  • The strategies for a sustainable Made in Italy;
  • The role of technology and its impact on distribution approaches, with the opening of new channels and allocation of new and different players in functions traditionally covered by those in the sector;
  • Discussion of the strategies for an Excellence Group in the Food&Beverage sector.
