Current Industry PE: Investors are more pessimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 13.3x which is lower than its 3-year average PE of 17.4x. It appears they believe that earnings will not grow as fast as they have historically.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Food industry have declined 7.1% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 5.2% per year. This means that although more sales are being generated, either the cost of doing business or the level of investment back into businesses has increased, which has decreased profits.
