Trade Wars and Food

Henrik Stamm Kristensen

Trade wars have been a reality for centuries but in today’s world, the immediate losers in the agrifood industry are the farmers and 500 million SMEs producing 80% of the world’s food with most of them having just one single local production site. Powder products like whey protein concentrate from Germany used in sports nutrition formulations are on the list because the US has a huge local production. At Blendhub, we believe that multi-localized production is the only way forward for any food producer to ensure that their sustainable food brands are available to consumers, anywhere in the world and with the best possible price and availability using the most sustainable ingredients for any specific recipe. Join the #CloudBlending movement and localize your food manufacturing today.
