Look to Improve Process to Increase Margins

What can food and beverage manufacturers and distributors do to maintain and even increase margins - the answer could be found in process improvement and innovation.


Pennies still matter in the food industry.  The smallest of cost improvements is a big deal.  The improvements discussed above are just the tip of the iceberg. 

Manufacturers must maximize the utilization of their biggest and best asset – their employees – to drive cost reductions, streamline processes and eliminate waste throughout the entire supply chain.

If you haven’t done so already, challenge your supervisors and teams to look for process improvements and reward them for finding them.
