Price fixing. Rising raw-material prices and emergence of huge agricultural conglomerates have pushed players to collude and form cartels to co-ordinate pricing for mutual benefit at the expense of buyers.

Growth in Asia Pacific markets. A rising middle class population and an improving macroeconomic environment in the Asian economies of India and China has increased consumption of food and drinks in these countries.
