As the Canadian consumer markets industry transforms, companies should explore new strategies to stay in the game. Access to multi-distribution channels, entry into new markets, innovative products, cost management, and the streamlining of the entire value chain can be critical.
Through a global network of professionals, we provide industry-specific services and support through our Food, Beverage, and Consumer Products, and Retail sectors. We work closely with our clients to help them understand the implications and develop appropriate organizational responses to business and technological risks. Specifically, we advise clients in a variety of areas aimed at enhancing performance and infrastructure, growing value, and strengthening reporting, including:
- Managing information technology and risk issues surrounding consumer privacy
- Assessing underperformance
- Entering new markets
- Funding growth
- Pre-empting fraud.
Our approach is based on our understanding of the marketplace issues affecting consumer markets. We continually invest in these sectors, develop intellectual capital, and drive thought leadership through our work with industry associations, sponsorship of industry events, and initiation of industry research.
As a result, we can provide customized, industry-focused advice from our Audit, Tax, and Advisory practices. At KPMG, our advice is practical and focused. We look at the consumer-driven supply chain and the factors that influence the market—from raw material, through to manufacturing, distribution, and customer interaction—in order to bring greater opportunities to your business.
