Digital solutions for an improved CPG industry

Mar 30, 2023

With increased demand in the CPG industry, new technology is vital for operations to remain sustainable and profitable. Schneider Electric has the solutions.

Consumers are demanding more, and for those working in the consumer-packaged goods (CPG) industry, these demands are changing the way products are brought to market and bringing about several challenges as a result.

Shorter product lifecycles, with an increase in small batch manufacturing, require increased agility and flexibility in the operations of the CPG sector. For business owners and manufacturers, this needs to be balanced with ongoing sustainability, as well as health and safety, workforce empowerment and profitability. Luckily, digital solutions can assist companies in dealing with these challenges.
