Key Trends in Consumer Packaged Goods

Digital Revolution

Technology, artificial intelligence and big data are having a major impact on the packaged goods sector. Tech-savvy leaders with vision are needed to help this sector achieve a circular economy, while managing changes that see farmers increasingly apply targeted approaches to reduce additives and chemicals required to grow produce and where packaging for every type of product pre- and post-consumer is designed to minimise waste.

1

A More Demanding Consumer

Consumers want food that is good for them and good for society despite global trade tensions; locally-sourced, sustainably produced food, with trendy flavours and environmentally friendly packaging, at the right price. Industry leaders are responding by creating products that are good for the body, the environment and the community.

2

The Rise of Local (Farm to Counter)

A new generation of consumers wants natural, farm-fresh produce, without pesticides, direct from the farmer – who expects to be compensated fairly. As consumers, today’s generation is more vocal about demanding a fair farm-to-counter supply chain – and expects leaders and companies to innovate and, if needed, disrupt the status quo.

3

Transparency & Sustainability

Consumers are demanding increased transparency through the entire production value chain. They want to know the origin of their products and whether it was produced ethically and sustainably. They expect full disclosure on ingredients, additives and the manufacturing process. Every leader must be capable of creating value, influencing stakeholders and changing business processes for a sustainable business.

When it comes to sustainability, we aspire to the same standards as our clients. We are proud to have been awarded a Bronze rating by Ecovadis.
