However, the food and drink sector remains resilient, relying on innovation and adapting to new food fashions in order to capture new customer interest.

The challenge of balancing global brand control, co-ordination and cost-efficiency has never been more urgent. In a White Paper, commissioned by HHGlobal we explore the benefits of decoupling the marketing supply chain.
Decoupling happens when marketing strategy and creative development is clearly separated from execution and delivery.
Lead agencies take care of the front end whilst production partners like HHGlobal take care of implementation.
80% of organiations believe in the importance of measuring ROI in marketing. But only 45% have the data available to do so, and only 40% actually complete the exercise.
ROMI is recognized as the key to measuring marketing effectiveness, allowing a direct comparison of the efficiency of different campaigns.
Net profit is a measure of campaign effectiveness. Both must be used together for effective market budget setting and management.
Top criteria in choosing a marketing services provider include: the quality and consistency of the services offered; pricing; reach and availability of services; understanding of business needs and ability to innovate.
Because there is no one-size fits all approach to decoupling, the decision to decouple must be carefully planned, risks assessed and the opportunity for value creation and innovation fully explored.
As process experts, HHGlobal is perfectly positioned to take a best-practice approach.
