Commercial Intelligence

What Is Commercial Intelligence?

Commercial intelligence in the ingredients sector means knowing about supply, demand, pricing, and logistics, not just for one company but industry-wide, to provide context for impactful market forces. In other words, what you know about the cost and availability of a given ingredient vs. what your supplier knows are often two different things. McKeany-Flavell bridges that gap.
