When it comes to cutting costs and investing safely, brands need to focus on the activities that’ll promote a sustainable business and not chase after trends or simply do one form of promotion just because retailers and the market might be pressuring them to do it, Goldman recommended.
In early 2022, the company partnered with Germany’s Seedtrace and South Africa’s MTN Group to create a blockchain-tech-led approach to enable “tamper-proof” transparency across the value chain. “Instead of having a person enter information on the blockchain, it links the data from mobile money transactions,” explained Appiagyei-Poku. “This combination allows us to verify additional farmer income, deliver full proof and increase trust among stakeholders.”
Koa co-founder and managing director Anian Schreiber added: “We want to get rid of long, non-transparent supply chains. Instead of claiming good practices, we put our cards on the table to let the consumers witness each transaction to farmers.”
Leveraging regional and global integration selectively across the value chain enables companies to achieve sustainability targets, reduce costs and enhance customer satisfaction.

According to Jewel Coffee Chairman and CEO Adrian Khang, the driving force behind creating Zerup was twofold – simplicity in application and meeting the escalating demand for sugar alternatives.

McDonald’s announced that it is testing a small-format, beverage-led concept called CosMc’s. The launch is McDonald’s first new restaurant concept in the United States in 60 years, reported the Wall Street Journal. The new beverage-based QSR is named for McDonald’s orange alien mascot that was featured in past advertisements.
During an investor presentation this month, Morgan Flatley, McDonald’s global chief marketing officer, stated that the concept allows McDonald’s to tap into markets where it hasn’t been as competitive, such as specialty beverages and coffee.
