Fast-Moving Consumer Goods

Accelerating innovation across consumer goods

With years of experience in the industry, we understand the evolving challenges facing companies within fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG). Digitalisation is allowing companies to have direct contact with consumers, to create tailored goods that give a more personalised experience, and to track usage. As the general shift towards E-commerce continues, this will have knock-on effects for formulated products and their packaging. If companies are to remain at the forefront of consumers’ minds and command a premium for their products, they must constantly seek to improve and evolve their offering.

Accelerating formulation development 

We drive innovation forward by enabling products and processes to be quickly and cost-effectively brought to market. By combining a deep scientific understanding of formulated products with automation, characterisation and industrial know-how, we enable a data-rich and rational design process. Our scientists are also experienced in applying product and process design principles, data-enabling measurement rigs and real-world engineering design expertise. This reduces the risk of introducing novel process technologies and accelerates the development of new and robust formulated products.
