Food & Ingredients

Food & Ingredients

These are highly fragmented industries, challenged by positive as well as negative trends: healthy foods, food safety issues, increased interest in specialty foods, organic foods, consolidation of distributors, and many emerging brands.

Other than specialty niche segments, overall organic growth has been modest, forcing many participants to fuel growth through acquisitions and initiatives in specialty foods or ethnic food tastes.

Corporate Fuel has been active in these industry segments:

  • Specialty food products
  • Food distribution
  • Food importers
  • Food manufacturers
  • Food and pharmaceutical ingredients
  • Flavors, fragrances and essential oils
