Fabulous 40

The 40 fast growing food & drink companies

Published by Elsevier in May, BlueMind conducted a research in the Food & Drink sector and composed a ranking of the 40 fastest growing companies in this sector in 2006 – 2008.
The in-depth research includes facts & figures as well as M&A developments and several interviews with CEO’s and CFO’s of these companies. The concentration of strength in the worldwide food retail market and the global rollout of leading brands is forcing the Dutch food industry to scale up. Suppliers of fresh products and private label producers are catching up. They therefore dominate the Fabulous 40 study. The economic crisis barely influenced the turnover in the food industry. Consumers have not started eating less during the recession, although they did adapt their eating patterns.
