Analyzing the Impact of Trade Promotions for a Leading Dried Herbs and Spices Manufacturer

Jun 16, 2018

Summary of the Dried Herbs and Spices Industry

Dried herbs and spices are the most common form of seasoning used by companies operating in the food and beverage industry. Though the demand for herbs and spices is particularly high in regions such as Spain and Poland, they are gradually gaining popularity among global consumers owing to their longevity and ease of storage.

The industry also faces challenges in the form of multiple external factors. One such challenge is that they are susceptible to substitution with artificial flavors. Substitution turns out to be the only real threat in the food and beverage industry. However, the threat of permanent or temporary substitution is particularly relevant for expensive herbs and spices that face a supply shortage, such as vanilla. To overcome such challenges, leading players in the food and beverage industry have developed sophisticated systems to meet the requirements of food legislation, customer demands, and market needs.
