The FMCG sector has undergone substantial consolidation in recent years. Although many SME branded and private label producers are still independent, they are often niche producers, active in regional or national markets with low market growth. They may also be overly reliant on local brand or image, with limited marketing abilities.
Larger FMCG groups, on the other hand, often have the distribution and marketing power to enter niche markets themselves whereas private equity or family offices can contribute finance and expertise to extend brands and develop distribution.
Our team’s expertise spans confectionary, bakery products, chocolate, ambient foods, frozen foods, drinks, tobacco and more.
Altium has the skills to position FMCG companies throughout the M&A process, and our international approach gives clients local access to all types of buyers, from global corporations to specialist investors.
In addition, Altium’s experience of advising e-commerce businesses is an additional asset now that online distribution channels are playing an increasing role for specific FMCG products.
With a clear understanding of the strategic and operating issues facing FMCG companies, Altium consistently delivers real value and insight to our clients in this sector.
