  Global Food & Beverage Market
Consumers want food and beverages that are convenient,
  healthy, safe, tasty and better value.
The global food and beverage industry is responding by:
• Managing margins through consolidation/ rationalisation of
  production, distribution, marketing and by leveraging global
  value chains
• Leveraging umbrella brands and increasingly outsourcing
  contract and private label manufacture
• Changing the definition of foods by producing innovative
  products with healthy/functional properties
• Taking a more holistic/integrated approach to food safety
  and traceability.
   The Strategic Opportunities for
   NZ Food & Beverage
Build value by using existing F&B industry capability,
combined with R & D investment to deliver higher value/
margin products
Grow confidence by leveraging NZ’s safe and sustainable
food production system
Ensure access by strengthening NZ’s connections

    “Added Value” Report Observations
• “Added-value” production varies from 35% (in Dairy and Fruit and
Vegetables) to 100% (in beverages) depending on the sector.
• Approximately 46% of all goods are “added-value” products in the
NZ food-processing sector. However, the bulk of NZ “added-value”
food processing is occuring in the smaller (by dollar value) sectors.
• The key challenge (and opportunity) for the NZ food processing
sector is to increase the percentage “added value” in the “high-dollar”
meat, dairy and fruit and vegetable sectors. NB: In some sectors,
such as meat, current trade restrictions may limit the opportunities to
significantly increase the “added-value” component.

NB: Products have been separated into “added value” and “commodity” at the
HS10 level by industry experts where possible, and using an “average pricing”
financial rule where no clear distinction could be made.
