For the second year, Mintec has been recognised for its contribution to delivering data and analysis to the food and CPG sector.
Its platform, Mintec Analytics, was selected as the winner of Best Food Pricing Data & Analysis Provider 2020 at the 5th annual Food and Drink Awards, hosted by LUX Life.
Spencer Wicks, CEO of Mintec, said: “Mintec is thrilled to be recognised again for its achievements developing the platform. Winning this award for two consecutive years is proof that our continued investment in the platform and the extension of our data coverage is exceeding customers’ expectations. We believe the award showcases our expertise, dedication to customer service, innovation and most importantly, our significant commitment to excellence.”
The expansion of price data coverage has also continued including the expansion of Mintec’s proprietary pricing, Mintec Benchmark Prices, in response to new consumer food trends such as the growth in plant-based proteins.
The online platform provides access to food price data and insight, which helps customers increase price visibility, improve budget management and control their spend. Together with providing access to over 14,000 commodity prices, the platform gives F&B professionals access to a suite of analytical tools. These empower them to understand their supplier prices better, analyse their spend behaviour and ensure visibility to manage budgets and control the cost of goods sold.
Just like meat, many plant products are a good source of protein. But what plants offer the best protein source as an alternative to meat? And are some of these sources better than others?

Uncertainty will continue to loom high for 2020. That’s the outlook from the OECD, and one that is echoed by economists and businesses. Ramping up volatility is a squeeze on free trade.
