IPS

Ideas for today and tomorrow.

Problem

Completely new innovation is rare, especially in the saturated Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry. CPG companies are often not creating entirely new technologies, but instead making minor alterations to products already on the market. This saturation has left retailers in a compromising position when it comes to offering their customers cutting edge products.

Completely new innovation is rare, especially in the saturated Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry. CPG companies are often not creating entirely new technologies, but instead making minor alterations to products already on the market. This saturation has left retailers in a compromising position when it comes to offering their customers cutting edge products. Due to a new competitive environment and changed buying habits, consumers are buying more online and through mobile. Competition is no longer the store across the street but global.

Aditionally, retailers are looking to:

  • Increase dollar volume
  • Stop the cannibalization in their stores
  • Integrate products that increase each category's overall new revenue
  • Source new, innovative, unique and patented products that will make a differential between them and their competition
  • Provide products that bring excitement, more engagement, and drive bigger basket sizes
