We work with Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) businesses across multiple industry verticals.

Startups

Whether you already have one or more great products, or you are still in the product development phase, we can help. We can assist with everything from market research, business planning and go-to-market strategy, to product design and product development.

Established Businesses

Our consulting practice for established CPG businesses focuses on positioning clients for long term, sustainable growth. This usually requires a comprehensive analysis of internal (people, organizational structure, processes, systems) and external (competitors, market trends, pricing, marketing) aspects of your business.

Unlike some of our competitors, we don’t make false promises about doubling revenue within a few months, or turning things around in weeks. We practice what we preach — steady, sustainable growth achieved through hard work, great ideas, superior execution, and ethical marketing.

Business problems we help solve

How do we compete in the market?

We have a good website and have some enthusiastic customers, but we just aren’t growing the way I think we should. Our competitors are all over social media, have mobile apps, and are outmaneuvering us. I don’t think we use digital marketing effectively. What can we do to increase brand awareness, build greater customer loyalty and drive more sales?

In our business, economies of scale are critical. At our current size we are getting killed on freight, shipping, distribution and supplier pricing. We barely have enough cash to cover minimum order quantities. The market is huge, but we have a tiny market share. We don’t want to grow too slowly, but we also don’t want to grow so fast that we lose our identity — everything that makes us special. How can we scale our business without compromising our quality and values?

How do we attract and retain the best people ?

We are having trouble attracting and retaining high quality people. We  seem to be stuck between a rock and a hard place. If we  increase wages too much, we don’t make any money. If we keep wages where they are, turnover increases and we lose our best employees. What should we do?

Our business has expanded rapidly, but we are experiencing more and more growing pains.  Production, fulfillment, distribution, marketing, sales and customer service are misaligned. We are hearing more customer complaints about late deliveries and  product quality issues, and product returns are increasing. We need to figure out what is going on and get it fixed as soon as possible. Can you help us?

How do we adopt more sustainable  practices?

We want to shift our supply chain, production, packaging, shipping and distribution toward more environmentally sustainable practices, without negatively impacting profits. What are our options?

If you are looking for a business consulting firm with integrity, passion, and a talent for delivering results, then you have come to the right place. You may have more options than you think. We can help you identify and evaluate opportunities so you can make an informed decision that balances risks against rewards.
