Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG)

FMCG sector is experiencing a tremendous growth globally and regionally. Most Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) manufacturers and retailers are stating that sustainability is increasingly central to their business; With the economic downturn putting budgets under pressure, the need to cut costs was the most commonly reported reason for companies to introduce sustainability to their operations. FMCG companies have now started taking sustainability seriously.

Most brands link themselves with the social causes, thereby linking consumers with the brands and gaining goodwill in the market. They started examining the issue of consumer demand, improvements of products and the processes involved in their production and delivery in order to provide opportunities for the industry to reduce its environmental impact in terms of reducing wasted resources and unnecessary spend.
