James Manafas, Director, Consult Group Company.
Sometimes the right answer is no
Our brand partner clients always come first – but that doesn’t mean we always say yes. When choosing to partner with an external FMCG specialist team like ours, you have to be sure there is an aligned, best-fit approach to collaborating.
We do ask tough questions, and we do give honest and informed advice gained from over three decades in the FMCG consulting business. We’ve been around a long time, we’ve learnt a lot. We’ve built deep, trusting relationships with brand partners and retailers alike. Trust is a true corporate currency.
“Working with the Consult Group team is electric. Together over the last three years we have traversed the world of the wholesale grocery market. CG has been there mapping out the path ahead for us, doing the background work, planning, talking to buyers, promoting the product, foreseeing possible issues and making sure if anything needs seeing to, it is sorted…so we can focus on what we do best.
James and the team have believed in us, trusted us, and worked their butts off to make sure that we succeed and for that I am eternally grateful. The value that the team brings with their industry knowledge in the FMCG and grocery channels, along with an endless powerhouse of personal resources that have been built and nurtured over years is a genuine commodity.”
