Blog: just-food live from the CAGE investment conference
Dean Best | 17 March 2014
Nestle, Danone, Kerry Group and Ebro Foods are among the multinational food manufacturers presenting over the next three days here at the Consumer Analyst Group of Europe conference in London.
The CAGE conference has become a key date in the industry calendar, with blue-chip companies outlining to the financial and investment community their plans for growth.
For the fourth year, just-food and sister site just-drinks are the media partners at the event. Today kicks off with Kraft Foods Group CFO Teri List-Stoll and Glanbia MD Siobhán Talbot discussing the latest developments and outlooks for their business.
Eighteen months after the split of Kraft Foods Inc created the US-focused grocery supplier Kraft Foods Group, the Cheez Whiz and Oscar Mayer owner will outline its strategy to an audience of European investors and analysts. Kraft will provide interesting insight into the state of mind of consumers in the US, where shoppers remain cautious.
Glanbia presents just days after reporting 2013 results and 2014 forecasts that pleased the market. Continued improvement at the Ireland-based group's performance nutrition arm offset a challenging year for its domestic dairy division. At CAGE, analysts will want to hear more about the outlook for both sides of the business and about Glanbia's plans for more M&A.
just-food will bring exclusive media coverage from CAGE across the three days, where the likes of Barry Callebaut, Givaudan, IFF and Symrise will join the packaged food groups in outlining how they see trading conditions in 2014 and beyond.
