Industry Conditions/Outlook
Recent trends toward consolidation in the food and beverage industry have focused on both cost reduction and market share control.  As commodity prices have increased, many larger food and beverage companies have looked ay acquisitions to offset margin reductions through greater efficiency and product price growth.  With valuation multiples for many sectors at more attractive levels than prior years, M&A activity appears to be picking up. We have recently seen interest in both branded and private-label production, but strong brands with the ability to command premium pricing have been particularly attractive to buyers as cost reduction strategies have been maximized for many industry participants.

American Appraisal has specialized experience in the valuation of all types of brand assets and large operating food and beverage processing facilities encompassing real and personal property and other associated intangible assets.  We have performed valuation and consulting services for companies involved in all aspects of food production, marketing and distribution, from farms to warehousing and distribution centres.
