FMCG Manufacturing

Delivering expert interim management in the FMCG Manufacturing Sector

The FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) Manufacturing practice is driven by Nigel Peters, a highly experienced leader in the provision of executives to this exciting sector, with an unrivalled network of professional contacts spanning eighteen years.

Employing over 400,000 workers, the leading FMCG division is the food and drink manufacturing industry,  the single largest manufacturing sector in the UK with a turnover of £92bn. 

The one constant within the sector is “change” - the last ten years have especially seen an enormous amount of upheaval and consolidation. For many organisations, the need to run a (literally) Lean organisation that can compete and transform itself quickly has never been stronger.

The sector can never rest – this is perhaps best illustrated by the £1bn invested in research and development in 2011 - during the peak of the downturn.

The pressure to be efficient has led to a drive to increase productivity and quality, together with the widespread adoption of World Class Manufacturing practices and techniques. Although there are still a lot of improvements that can be made, the sector should be proud that it’s workforce are on the whole 50% more productive than the EU average.
