Retailers and consumer product manufacturers play a vital role in Ireland’s economy with companies ranging from small, family owned, indigenous businesses to large multinational corporations.

Advancements in technology, investment in infrastructure and increased insights from data and analytics have allowed many manufacturers and retailers to redesign operations to reduce costs and increase productivity.

However, there are also challenges in today’s dynamic and fast-moving environment. Businesses are under increasing pressure to evolve and adapt to changing consumer behaviour and stakeholder expectations. Additional pressure from rising cost bases, resource constraints and new market entrants is impacting company’s supply chains, growth prospects and profitability.
