The food and consumer goods industry is a vital and vibrant sector of the economy. Market trends driven by consumer demand are sometimes ahead of the legislation, which needs to be adapted. Sometimes, policy action is needed to drive production and consumption towards more sustainable habits.
Innovation is key to success as the industry strives to make safe food and consumer goods of the highest quality accessible to as many people as possible. In the FMCG sector more than anywhere else, there are high expectations from household brands to conduct their business in a purpose-driven way, with positive impacts on the society at large.
At Interel, we have a thorough understanding of the issues across the food chain, from “farm to fork” and across a range of consumer goods sectors including: cosmetics, consumer electronics, packaging and retail, and on cross-sectoral issues relating to business and environmental sustainability.
Our clients include food & drink companies, consumer goods companies, ingredients manufacturers, trade associations and professional associations. At Interel, we strive to keep them one step ahead of developments by anticipating and responding to regulatory or reputational challenges quickly and effectively.
