Consumer Products & Retail

Executing ruthlessly to deliver sustainable value

"Long term growth on the continent is increasingly reflecting social and demographic changes, creating new engines of growth - which includes an increasingly affluent consumer class. With the consumer as an accelerator of growth, there is certainly no doubt that Africa is on the Consumer Product companies agenda" - Derek Engelbrecht, Retail & Consumer Products Leader

There is a brand new order. Your customers, consumers and competitors are evolving at different speeds in different ways in different markets. In a world that’s more complex, connected and fast-moving than ever, the opportunities are massive, but so are the risks.

With uncompromising stakeholders demanding consistent growth and consumers demanding value and taking ownership of your brands, it’s time to reframe strategic choices, realign the value chain and ruthlessly execute for short-term results and long term sustainability.

Our professionals have the knowledge to help you challenge and disrupt entrenched ways of thinking. Whether you want to improve organizational agility; drive value from digital marketing spend; deploy talent effectively across markets; or re-engineer your supply chain for greater flexibility, we have the skills you need to succeed.
