Food & Agriculture Industry Executive Recruitment

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has calculated that by the year 2050, the world population will be 10 billion or more. These people will have to be fed and considering that the amount of arable land decreases every year, given the growth of urban sprawl on the planet, producing, storing, processing, industrializing, and distributing 70% more food is a huge challenge. It will force us to make more and better investments plus develop technology to improve productivity, safety, and quality. Organizations will require human talent to achieve these goals.

Trust CFR Global Executive Search Partners to provide experienced individuals focused on the food and agribusiness sector to provide executive search services to save you time and money.

Instead of hiring full-time employees you may or may not trust to yield profitable results, onboard a qualified consultant with the help of a recruiter.

Food Agribusiness 01

Local-to-Global Sustainability

The food and agribusiness industries must catch up with recent and rapid globalization trends in food processing, packaging, waste control, and disposal of waste and by-products.

Massive-Scale Delivery

Population growth will force food delivery systems to become robust enough to ship food virtually anywhere to feed a global population.

Production Efficiency

Producing more while consuming less nets a universally better bottom line while helping to preserve fertile growth areas for continued agricultural success.

Food Safety

The food and agribusiness supply chain is required to comply with quality and safety local and global standards for fresh and processed food.

Businesses operating within the food and agribusiness industries will require executive search experts who can efficiently identify experienced and capable top-level decision makers with highly specialized agricultural knowledge.

CFR Global Executive Search Approach to the
Food & Agribusiness Industries

Food Agribusiness 02

As a talent and consulting services leader among agriculture recruitment agencies, the CFR Global Executive Search approach is in constant evolution. We examine the most pressing issues in food production and set them against economic and business-level challenges to find executives prepared to deliver robustly constructed strategies.

Our food and agriculture industry headhunters seek for executives with the skills to:


Assessment is of particular importance in agribusiness. Because of the complexity of food production and delivery systems, executives must be skilled at quickly learning how those systems work together to simultaneously drive business success and address global-level agribusiness challenges.


Because growing and delivering food globally is so demanding, and because natural resources are dwindling, agribusiness must generate consistent and top-level productivity from its employees through highly competitive rewards and benefits systems.


Part of the improvement process in the food industry is ensuring that everyone from top to bottom is performing at their peak within the organization. Adept executives will make the most of available resources through carefully considered and executed internal organization.


The most capable leaders are also teachers; they will continually pass on valuable leadership and other universal skills to people within their organizations. Through doing so, they will develop systems of succession and create methodologies for ongoing success.
