In the last years prices for raw material reached an all time high (and have also been dropping again). This has made the cost price for raw materials very important for companies in the entire food supply chain. Parties at the end of the chain are more and more in control of the profits made by farmers. This means for suppliers to this group their customers are under increasing pressure. This will lead to an increase of scale in the primary sector, and suppliers are forced to work more professional and provide more added value to keep in business.
