Threat

1. Competition from stronger brands in the same industry: Smucker faces tough competition across its business segments from global and regional competitors. Consumer products giants like Pepsico, General Mills, Associated British Foods, Coca-Cola, Nestle, Danone, Mondelez, Unilever, and Mars are pursuing aggressive growth and expansion strategies which pose a direct challenge.

2. Decline in net sales and profit across all the segments: Sales and profit margins decreased in 2017 over that seen 2016 across all product categories, posing a threat to the company. Volume/mix reduced net sales by 5 percent driven by the loss of the Folgers brand, partially offset by gains for the Café Bustelo and Dunkin’ Donuts brands. Segment profit decreased by $23.9 million. Segment net sales decreased $28.4 million, primarily due to lower net price realization. Gains for Nature’s Recipe and Milk-Bone brands were more than offset by loss across the rest of the portfolio, most notably 9Lives and Meow Mix cat food. Segment profit decreased $20.1 million.

3. More focus on fresh food: Heightened focus on health and wellness, an increased desire for fresh foods, and the growing impact of social media and e-commerce on consumer behavior is also affecting the sales. Retailers like supermarkets and hypermarkets are the leading retail channels for fresh food, accounting for about 2/3rd of the sales. Smucker's jellies and baking brands which are its cash cows are not trending with changing consumer demands. Internet retailing has also contributed to the growth of fresh foods market by providing the convenience of delivery at the doorstep and posted a strong CAGR. As a result, traditional retail outlets like Whole Foods, Walmart etc. are investing in e-commerce in order to take advantage of this growth. Due to this, JM Smucker’s stock prices fell by approximately 30% in Sep 2017 since its most recent peak in August 2016.
