With its more than half a million employees and a turnover of more than 150 billion euro, the food & beverage industry counts among the important industrial sectors in Germany. Its production and trading section differs significantly from other markets. It is characterized by few large participants that face a large number of rather small companies in vertical as well as horizontal relationships. Detailed and profound legal regulations as well as considerable cost pressure continuously challenge the entire industry. For some time now, the food as well as the beverage markets have thus been in the process of consolidation.
Partners at LACORE have been active in this market for years and have supported medium-sized companies that count among the industry leaders in their respective sectors on numerous transactions, negotiations, and disputes, thereby gaining substantial market knowledge.
