Consumer Products

From source to consumer, profitably

The consumer products industry has undergone dramatic change in recent years.  Consolidation, new systems for supply chain management and distribution, the relaxation of international trade barriers, and the growth of information technology — these new ways of doing business have contributed to greater competition, overcapacity, slimmer margins and greater customer demands. For leaders who can turn challenges into opportunities, however, this business environment offers tremendous potential.

By integrating strategy, technology, finance and regulatory compliance, Deloitte's unique, multidisciplinary perspective helps to unleash the full potential of your consumer products organization for profitable growth. We serve 97% of the world’s top 30 consumer products companies in all industry segments. Developing brand strategies to set them apart, identifying ways to achieve leaner operations and more efficient supply chains, and establishing internal controls that stand up to today’s scrutiny are only some of the solutions we’ve provided.
