The food and beverage industry is remarkably diverse. Thousands of different products and many types of processes (including fresh, frozen, chilled, and long-shelf-life goods) serve customers ranging from megaretailers to small chains, independent stores, catering services, restaurants, and exporters. Manufacturers must respond to the demands of retailers and customers, manage supply chain processes, and make sure delivery times and schedules are coordinated.
