These are challenging times for consumer products companies. Rapidly changing consumer priorities accelerated by the pandemic, increasing complexity in global supply chains, and intensifying competition is creating a perfect storm of disruption. It has become more difficult to drive higher levels of growth and productivity. Companies must evolve their business models to deliver on shareholder expectations as well as the demands of the self-centric consumer.  

We bring an unbiased and assertive point of view as well as our experienced and tactical skillset to help companies navigate everything from mergers and acquisitions to shifts in underlying consumer demand trends. Our revenue growth-oriented work is based on research and data insights, is highly quantifiable, and delivered within the timeframe of an accelerated transformation. A food and beverage company increased gross margin by 500 bps through a companywide operational improvement program and targeted M&A activity. A household products company doubled operating profit by optimizing its pricing and promotion, product portfolio, and end-to-end supply chain. Our experienced teams help consumer products companies implement powerful solutions and achieve sustainable changes in performance and value.

Missing these targets comes with financial consequences, including higher cost of debt and capital and lower total shareholder return and EBITDA growth. So, what can companies do to make real change and get closer to reducing their carbon outputs?

Insights on supply chain disruption

After nearly three decades of expansion, the forces of globalization—which have helped fuel economic growth through greater trade, exchange, and openness—are in retreat.
