Food, Drink & Consumer Products 

In the challenging food, drink and consumer products sectors, manufacturers and importers are adapting to fast-changing business conditions through innovative product development, new technologies, supply chain enhancements and business acquisitions and divestments.

Creating a strong brand identity, battling for shelf space, leveraging new product categories and growing the customer base are also core concerns for consumer product companies.
Increasingly, successful industry participants acknowledge the role of professional advisers in refining their business strategies and executing their plans. They know that the best advice is based on solid industry experience.


It is why many leading manufacturers make KPMG their business and financial adviser of choice.
