ABOUT
The Summit

The FMCG industry has undergone a protracted consumption slowdown, and faces what looks like a tedious path to recovery. Business leaders must keep looking ahead to invest in ways of working that will help engineer getting back to double digit growth through a rapid penetration increase, culminating in serving more consumers more completely. In order to enable business leaders overcome the enormous challenges being faced by the FMCG Sector due to a protracted consumption slowdown and weakening consumer sentiment, the Confederation of Indian Industry is organizing the National FMCG Summit on December 18, 2019 at the Taj Lands End, Mumbai.
