Global reach

US corn, global super brands, vitamins from China, French mega retailers, global beverage producers, Philippine fast food chains, and Norwegian fishing companies are all linked in a truly global business. Your production, be it citric acid or cellulose, is affected by decisions made by your upstream suppliers and the restaurant chain half way around the world.

You need to know what is happening in consumer consumption trends, mergers and acquisitions, palm oil supply, nutraceuticals, and plant expansions, not just in your region, but globally and on a real-time basis. We analyse the business news where ever food growers, processors, and retailers operate around the world.

It is easy to spend hours online trying to see what is happening in the food and beverage sectors, identifying new trends and innovations, researching competitors’ strategies – sometimes for no real result. Subscribing to FLEXNEWS will bring you all the latest news and information quickly, easily, and via email and one easy-to-access site.
