The Safety Pros and Cons of Convenience Foods

Convenience has always been a key driver of consumer purchases in the food industry. While today’s consumers are more conscientious about the foods they eat, they still want products that are convenient and easy to prepare. Research by Nielsen revealed that one in four U.S. adults has purchased a meal kit in the last year, and 70 percent continue to buy them after making their first purchase.

Smart Food Sourcing and Brand Transparency

Today’s consumers want more variety in their food, but they are also more critical of product labels. They want food supply chain transparency, especially about the origin of their products they buy. On the regulatory side, new laws stipulate a focus on preventing contaminated raw materials from getting into the food supply chain, rather than dealing with contamination in factories. For anyone involved in the supply chain, delivering on these expectations can be challenging.

Increased globalization and remote sourcing in the food industry have brought food options and convenience closer to home for many consumers. However, the ever-growing demand for these products has created new challenges for suppliers, shippers, and retailers. With the perishables industry constantly expanding, physical distances and shipping conditions are critical considerations in the supply chain.
