The food and beverage sector is a multi-billion dollar market for water and wastewater treatment technologies. With the largest companies consuming as much water per year as small countries, the global industry uses around 62 km3 per year. That’s about as much as the total utility water supply for the Middle East and North Africa combined.

The sheer diversity of the products, processing steps, water and wastewater treatment needs of food and drink companies opens up many ways to access the market. And there are a number of global trends that are creating huge opportunities for water technology companies: the tightening of wastewater quality regulations, the trend towards environmental efficiency, emerging market growth and water scarcity will ensure that capex on water technologies by F&B companies will reach $6bn in 2020.

The stage is set for every player in the market to increase their revenue in this sector. Access is open to all water technology companies, ranging from large global firms to smaller niche technology manufacturers. We interviewed representatives from leading food and beverage companies, food and beverage associations and water technology experts READ MORE >
