Blog: Dean BestBig Food in investor spotlight this week at CAGNY

Dean Best | 19 February 2018

The senior management of a number of the major food manufacturers operating in the US will be in Florida this week for a key date on investor calendars.

The latest edition of the Consumer Analyst Group of New York conference will be held in Boca Raton, a city on the south-eastern coast of the Sunshine State and investors will be keen to hear how companies from Nestle and Unilever to PepsiCo and General Mills are navigating some of the most challenging conditions seen in the sector for a generation.

General Mills is the company scheduled to present first, with CFO Don Mulligan and CEO Jeff Harmening appearing before the CAGNY audience at 08:00 ET tomorrow (20 February)

During the four-day event, investors are also set to hear from a number of recently-installed CEOs, including Mondelez International's new boss Dirk Van de Put at 13:00 ET tomorrow and Kellogg's Steve Cahillane at 08:00 ET on Wednesday.

Among the other closely-watched presentations will be Hain Celestial, the US business among the companies in the vanguard of the growth of the country's natural and organic food sectors over the last two decades but which is now facing stiff competition.

As ever, we'll be keeping tabs on the news and views to emerge from CAGNY so stay tuned.
