How are manufacturers performing this year?

Six months after our 2023 Food and Beverage Report was published, we look at how food and beverage manufacturers have performed this year, provide forecasts for the remainder of 2023 and early 2024, and highlight trends to watch moving forward.

  • Job vacancy rates in key food sectors are declining
  • Spending on foodservices returned to pre-pandemic levels
