Who is at the Top of the Food Industry?

The food industry is a branch of industry that deals with the processing of food for human and animal needs and its main task is to meet the food needs of consumers. In a pre-industrial society, man grew food himself, or sometimes even traded it, exchanged food, whereas today only part of society is engaged in food production. Nowadays, the meat, fishing, dairy and baking industries are developing. Building a name in the world of the food industry is no easy task.

People love delicious, quality food, but as with everything else, tastes are always different. That's why it's not easy to build such a big name and brand, because it would mean that a large number of people really like those foods and products.
