HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Food Industry Almanac, 2017 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.
The global food and agricultural industry for 2016 was about a $8.0 trillion market, according to Plunkett Research estimates, or about 10% of the world's GDP. Global food exports totaled $1.33 trillion in 2015, according to the World Trade Organization (latest data available). While it is obvious that food is of equal importance to all people on planet Earth, the relative cost of that food is not equal. It varies widely due to such influences as location, local food industries and the availability of proper infrastructure for food transportation and storage.
Plunkett Research lists top 500 companies in the Food Industry and names the top trends changing for the mid term.
