Food and Drink Commentary

The new issue of Bidwells first “Food and Drink” sector commentary examines key trends within the food industry from a property perspective.

Food & Drink producers are continuing to experience pressure with regard to both escalating input prices, particularly in areas like animal feed and fuel, and a constrained consumer economy struggling to emerge from a double-dip recession.  With little prospect of improvement in 2013, the need to control property cost overheads whilst enhancing operational flexibility is of paramount importance.

” But this dark cloud does have a silver (or maybe bronze) lining, according to the new report” commented Ian Peck, Partner, Bidwells

A soft market is a good time to consider:

  • Relocating to high quality industrial or logistics facilities
  • Renegotiating leases
  • Securing planning permission for new facilities
  • Purchasing land or buildings.


So when you are carving your way through a recessionary forest, keep your eyes peeled (for a bargain), your mind open (to new possibilities) and your advisors close (to your and the market)
