The fast moving consumer goods and distribution sectors today face significant changes as on the one hand, the recession considerably impacts consumers’ household purchasing power, and on the other, new technologies fundamentally change both purchasing methods and consumers’ relationships to products and brands. Firms find themselves constrained in their business model as they attempt to adapt to the evolution of the market.
In order to succeed, today’s fast moving consumer goods and distribution firms must think differently in order to ensure the joint development of sales and profitability.
Our expert teams bring both extensive experience and a complete skill set to their missions, helping distribution clients anticipate market trends, evaluate opportunities, and develop innovative solutions.
