S&OP / IBP: 5 Trends in Beverage Industry

Oftentimes we find on the supermarket shelves products with a new package or label saying – “new and improved”, which clearly highlights a product improvement has taken place, hence the name “New Product Version” or “Product Improvement”.

Happy to share interesting findings from our recent research on the beverages industry.
Our research team analysed over 3,300 Beverages companies in North America and over 2,300 companies in EMEA. Our research focused on S&OP, examining dedicated technology, processes, and organizational focus. Furthermore, we conducted a comparative analysis between the European and North American markets, uncovering valuable insights.

The key takeaway: S&OP adoption continues to grow, as companies face ongoing challenges in the supply chain domain. Companies are now placing greater emphasis on structured planning systems, evident from the increased focus and allocation of specific titles within their organizations.
