Food & Beverage


InterChina has been consulting in the Food & Beverage Sector since our establishment in 1994 and we have participated in the rapid evolution of the sector. This puts us in a unique position and allows us to deliver unmatched value to our Food & Beverage Sector clients today.

Our Food & Beverage Sector clients range from agricultural producers to packaged food manufacturers to food service suppliers. The projects we have conducted for these clients have ranged from complex strategy development work (e.g. competitor benchmarking, competitive positioning, market education, brand building) to complex acquisition advisory (e.g. acquisition strategy, target profile design, target search from long list to short list, evaluation of shortlisted targets).
