The food and beverage industry continues to experience significant M&A activity from both strategic and financial buyers. Strategic buyers are looking to M&A to expand market share, aid R&D, add capacity, and revamp their brand portfolios. In addition, private equity and family offices remain aggressive in most M&A processes, given their strong interest in the space due to its defensive nature and long-term growth characteristics. Winning buyers often are paying robust valuations as a result of this competitive M&A environment.
