Mergers and Acquisitions

To keep up with changing consumer tastes, especially related to the health and wellness trend, many companies add product lines or introduce healthier products and ingredients to their foods and drinks. Yet, rather than developing these newer products within the business’ existing operations, companies are acquiring businesses that produce the type of healthy foods or ingredients they’re looking for. It is essential that companies are diligent in weighing these tempting acquisitions, ensuring smart investment decisions are made based on sound market assessments rather than fleeting food fads.
