Food Dive, an online publication covering the food industry, reported that the market for food M&A remains strong. The article cited SDR’s Q3 Food & Beverage trend report and a recent survey from EY, which showed that 59% of global companies are anticipating a deal over the course of the next year.

Notable deals include Diamond Foods’ possible merger with Kellogg and Anheuser-Busch InBev’s proposed acquisition of SABMiller, which — according to Dealogic — would be the largest ever transaction in the beverage industry.

SDR’s Travis Conway put the industry’s Q3 success in context: “With over 190 reported M&A transactions in the third quarter of 2015, the US-based food and beverage industry is on pace to match 2014’s record levels of M&A activity,” he told Food Dive.
