From Farm to Fork: Bringing the aspirations of F&B entrepreneurs to life

Fuelling the success of F&B business

At OCBC, we bring the aspirations of entrepreneurs in the Food and Beverage (F&B) industry to life. Beyond restaurants, we support entrepreneurs across the whole value chain in the F&B industry.

An F&B value chain consists of all the stakeholders, from producers to wholesalers, distributors, and F&B service providers, who participate in the coordinated production and value-adding activities needed to make and deliver delicious F&B products.

No matter which part of the F&B value chain you are operating in, our business solutions can help you capture untapped customer segments, establish an omnichannel strategy, explore vertical integration and unlock the opportunities in your supply chain, so you can focus on cooking up new money-making recipes.

Producers and food farmers
Producers and food farmers are involved in growing food and produce such as the production of eggs, fish and vegetables. Optimise your daily processes to increase the production of top-quality local produce by gaining access to technology or innovating ways to grow more with less.
Distributors
Wholesalers that sell meat, fish, fruits and vegetables. Manage your wholesale or distribution business by streamlining processes, gain better insights into financials, enhance your business’ food supply resilience and the ability to switch to alternative sources when the need arises.
Processors and manufacturers
Manufacturers and processors transform inputs into value-added products, which are then prepared or packed for the purpose of distribution to food retailers, food service establishments and consumers. These include bakery and flour confectionery manufacturers and meat and fish processing establishments.
Restaurants and F&B services
Restaurants and F&B services refer to food businesses like restaurants, cafés, bakeries, and food caterers. Capture new opportunities by testing new concepts to diversify your restaurant portfolio, gain insights to your patrons’ profiles and advertise your brand to profitably scale your F&B enterprise.
