Stimulated by President Trump’s commitment to “Making America great again” and after 2020 the impact of “Brexit” (for both the remaining European Union countries and the United Kingdom), major FMCG companies will have to make strategic decisions on their current levels of “Offshoring” if they wish to remain competitive and attractive to their current and future Customers.
Choose a FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) industry sector and outline that specific sector’s current approach to “Offshoring”.
Taking into account all the known and potential threats, risks and opportunities for that industry evaluate the various options that would appear to be open.
For a specific company within your chosen industry sector, appraise what decisions and actions they may considering taking and the justifications that support this.
