The Consumer Goods Forum Team & Friends, Tokyo 2013

Embracing Both Retailers and Manufacturers

As the only association in the consumer goods industry that is truly global, while embracing both retailers and manufacturers, our members understand the value of our uniqueness. Many of the opportunities and issues that we face as an industry can’t be addressed by individual companies alone, or just by collaborating regionally. Our members know that our global, cross-value chain perspective is critical to helping drive positive change globally.
Whether you are active in our committees and working groups, attend key events or simply make use of the documents and reports we create, we are committed to supporting you and our entire global membership in working together efficiently for positive change.
