Blog: Dean Bestjust-food at CAGE

Dean Best | 15 March 2015

Nestle, Danone, Kerry Group and Tyson Foods are among the multinational consumer goods manufacturers presenting next week at the Consumer Analyst Group of Europe conference in London - of which just-food and sister site just-drinks.com are the exclusive media partners.

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.

The event will give analysts and investors the chance to hear the likes of Luis Cantarell, the head of Nestle's business in the EMEA region, as well as Danone CEO Emmanuel Faber discuss how they see 2015 for their businesses.

Kerry CEO Stan McCarthy could provide more detail on his plans for M&A activity this year after telling the market last month he expected the company to make "a significant number" of acquisitions this year.

Fellow Ireland-based food group Glanbia are also at the CAGE conference, with investors expecting another solid year from a company that has posted double-digit growth in earnings for the last five years.

It is Tyson's first appearance at CAGE, with its CFO and the head of its retail packaged brands business presenting, so expect some comment on the US meat giant's plans for recent acquisition Hillshire Brands.

Senior executives from ingredients suppliers Givaudan, Ingredion, International Flavors & Fragrances and Frutarom are also set to address CAGE.

We will provide daily coverage from the event so stay tuned to our site and our daily newsletters for more.
