Retail & Consumer Products
How we can help
Retail and consumer products companies are experiencing profound transformation. Companies must compete in an omni-channel environment and create a competitive edge among a crowded field of capable competitors. To succeed, they must be creative in finding ways to blend store-based and online productivity for performance improvement.
For consumer products companies, fluctuations in global economic conditions continue to trigger unpredictable changes. These companies – which manufacture and market everything from food and beverages to toiletries, cosmetics, and small appliances – engage FTI Consulting to help them enhance performance across a broad range of initiatives. They rely on our seasoned experts’ advice and support to grow revenues, control costs, better manage cash flow, explore strategic alternatives, mitigate risk and navigate through an increasingly complex regulatory environment.

Organisations often face critical situations that can affect their reputation and value.
Organisations often face critical situations that can affect their reputation and value. These situations can relate to business transactions, strategic developments, governance changes, new regulatory frameworks and much more.
Effective communication with both internal and external audiences is crucial. That communication could, for example, be about explaining a new business strategy, announcing a restructuring or service offering, establishing someone as an expert, defending company interests or bringing issues to public attention.
FTI Consulting’s strategic communications specialists assist clients, in France and internationally, in developing and protecting their company’s reputation and value. In this way, we help them to establish a lasting presence in their target markets and to achieve continuing growth and development. Our team brings together professionals with diverse and complementary expertise to support companies and institutions operating in complex environments at each stage of their development and transformation.
- Corporate Communications and Reputational Management: Our experts interact with the stakeholders in a client’s sphere of influence, including media, public sector institutions, investors and internal audiences. We conduct perception audits and sector surveys to anticipate reputational risks and identify communications opportunities. We evaluate this data against objectives and define the optimal communications strategies and associated tactics in the context of existing media campaigns, public relations operations and digital strategies. We assist clients during sensitive situations and in crisis management to develop strategies, craft arguments, and train and prepare spokespeople for public and media engagement. In addition, we provide support in defining and implementing internal change support programmes.
- Public Affairs and Advocacy Communications: We deliver advocacy campaigns, working closely with French and European institutions to connect clients with relevant networks at the local, national, European and international level. Our experts provide institutional, legislative and political analyses, and support initiatives to represent clients’ interests to public authorities and institutions.
- Financial Communications & Investor Relations: We advise our clients on strategies for communicating with institutional investors and other market players including analysts, ratings agencies and specialist media. This can be helpful for both listed and unlisted companies, especially when issuing debt or equity. We help to optimise communications strategies through perception studies or investor targeting, and analyse publications from competitors and peers to refine the client’s equity story. Our teams provide support in relation to financial transactions, IPOs, debt issues and shareholder activism, as well as for roadshows and investor days.
