The markets for consumer goods and services are ever more competitive, dynamic and global. Success in the sector means understanding the increasing importance of brands and market profile, the growing sophistication and power of the customer, the importance of a supply chain that combines efficiency and effectiveness with product safety, and the growing role and opportunity for tactical and strategic alliances and combinations between different consumer brands.
