Shore Capital and EFFP Agri-Food Outlook: Spring 2017

Forecasting and commentary on the year ahead from agricultural raw materials to retailing strategies.

Brexit. Try as we might, we can’t avoid it. As with the last edition of the EFFP/Shore Capital Agrifood Outlook, Brexit again features. This time however our attention turns to how businesses can and should be planning for the challenges and opportunities that might present themselves.

The broader economic environment will inevitably influence businesses. Our retail food price inflation forecast model tracks where we believe food price inflation will be over the next year. Added to this, retailer strategies and the impact that consumer trends are having on supply chains come together to provide our network with an insight into the whole food chain, from agricultural commodities to consumer trends. Our VIEW interview is with Roger White, Chief Executive of AG Barr, providing the ‘theory into practice’ from a manufacturing perspective.

With the triggering of Article 50, Brexit is now a reality. We believe that the next two years offer a relatively stable period and for many a window to take stock and look towards 2019 and beyond, the post Brexit era. This edition also contains an Agrifood Brexit checklist, designed to be used as a prompt, guide or basis on which to start planning for a post-Brexit era.
