How CPGs & Retailers Can Adapt & Grow During COVID


We’ve seen 10 years of change in 1

In normal times, you risk leaving 1-2% of top line growth opportunities on the table. In today’s environment, that risk increases to 5-7%.

The right knowledge + fast analysis + business agility = success

5 Ways CPGs and Retailers Can Succeed Today

  1. Drive cross-functional collaboration and data sharing
    Break down data silos to get a holistic view of top-line and margin growth drivers and identify demand drivers in light of recent trends.
  2. Recover and improve shelf presence
    CPGs and retailers must stay in constant communication. Insights on consumption behavior and consumer needs will help manufacturers adjust to changing consumer demand at retail.
  3. Closely manage your market share
    With goods flying off the shelves, consumers are participating in “free” product trials that would be difficult to generate in normal circumstances. Monitor out-of-stocks and pricing to seize opportunities to gain customers.
  4. Adapt to new shopping behaviors
    Surveys and quantitative research can help you understand consumer motivation and provide insight into which trends, like curbside pickup and grocery delivery, may last.
  5. Plan for the new norm
    Take a “what if” approach to plan for various plausible scenarios, leveraging data from countries that are ahead in terms of crisis management as well as past data on economic recessions.
