Economic Sectors

Agriculture / Food Industry

One out of every five euros spent by consumers goes for agricultural and food products. As one of Germany’s most important economic sectors, this industry has a secure future ahead. But it’s also subject to constant change, most of all because of globalization.

The result is exten­sive oppor­tuni­ties for com­pa­nies in the indu­s­try, but at the same time, busi­ness has become more com­plex and more chal­len­ging. Inc­rea­sing dere­gu­la­tion, glo­ba­li­zed flows of goods, and vola­tile com­mo­dity pri­ces are just a few exam­p­les. Mar­ket parti­ci­pants must cope with new con­su­mer trends, the mar­ket power of gro­cery retai­lers, and satu­ra­ted home mar­kets. Many com­pa­nies must cope with heavy pres­sure on pri­ces and marg­ins, sli­ding pro­fits, and dec­li­ning cash flows.

We under­stand these spe­cial situa­ti­ons and chal­len­ges. Our expe­ri­en­ced Agri­cul­ture and Food team will impress you with their deep know­ledge of the indu­s­try, as well as their excel­lent skills in busi­ness mana­ge­ment and finance. Our cli­ents trust us not just as stra­te­gists or ana­lysts, but also as people who get things done. We’ve set our­sel­ves the goal of deve­lo­ping practica­ble solu­ti­ons that get our cli­ents ahead and keep them there.

Here we can draw on our strong net­works with banks, super­vi­sory boards, mana­ging boards, and other sta­ke­hol­ders in the indu­s­try. The close coope­ra­tion among our acco­un­t­ants, audi­tors, tax advi­sors, attor­neys and cor­po­rate con­sul­tants has led our cli­ents to trust us even with com­plex inter­di­s­ci­p­li­nary pro­jects.

We can sup­port you in facing both cur­rent and future chal­len­ges – with expe­ri­ence from more than 250 pro­jects in the agri­cul­ture and food indu­s­try. We deve­lop solu­ti­ons with you and for you, solu­ti­ons that really work in your day-to-day busi­ness, because that’s what it’s all about if you want to be suc­cess­ful for the long term.
