Fast Moving Consumer Goods
Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) are products that have high inventory turnover and a relatively low cost that satisfies a customer’s immediate wants and needs. Examples include non-durable household goods such as packaged foods, beverages, toiletries, candies, cosmetics, over-the-counter drugs, dry goods, and other consumables.
The FMCG industry faces increasing demands from the market: increasing cycle times, resource efficiency and innovation are more important here than in any other industry. Manufacturers need to be able to maintain product quality and precision while also being able to react flexibly to individual customer requirements.
