What EY-Parthenon consumer strategy consulting team can do for you

These are extraordinary times to be a consumer-facing company. As people change how and where they shop, and what they buy, retailers, consumer products, food and agribusiness companies must also swiftly pivot. While advances in technology, data capabilities and AI are accelerating this revolution, agility is the key to controlling it. Flexibility, ingenuity, and rapid response are the new hallmarks of success for consumer products and retail.

Bold action is required. Product, portfolio and customer experience must be rethought. To deliver excellence, your operating model and supply chain also need to be carefully re-examined. And all should be done in the context of sustainability and transparency. To be in full control, leaders must help create the future, not just respond to it.
