Unleashing a Consumer Goods Giant: How We Revived a UK Company’s Market Share and Boosted Revenue by 300% in 60 Days

Here's What We Do Better

Our client, a leading consumer goods company based in the United Kingdom, specializes in the production of household and personal care products. They faced fierce competition from multinational corporations and local brands, leading to a significant loss of market share. The company’s profitability had declined, and they sought our expertise to help them regain their footing in the industry.
The client faced several challenges, including:
  1. Loss of market share
  2. Decreased profitability
  3. Weakening brand reputation
  4. Eroding customer loyalty
We implemented multiple countertrade mechanisms to address the client’s challenges and drive exponential growth. The following mechanisms were employed:
Solution #1

Counter-Purchase: We facilitated agreements with buyers in new markets who committed to purchasing our client’s products in exchange for the client purchasing goods or services from these markets.

Solution #2

Offsets (Direct and Indirect): We negotiated agreements with suppliers, resulting in investments in the client’s home country and purchases of goods and services from local suppliers.

Solution #3

Joint Ventures (JVs): We helped establish joint ventures with strategic partners in key markets, enabling the client to leverage local knowledge and resources to penetrate new markets more effectively.

Solution #4

Co-production: We collaborated with partners in different countries to develop and manufacture our client’s products, reducing production costs and increasing efficiency.

To execute the countertrade mechanisms, we:
  1. Conducted market research to identify potential partners and target markets.
  2. Engaged in negotiations with suppliers, buyers, and JV partners to reach mutually beneficial agreements.
  3. Established a robust monitoring system to ensure the success of the implemented mechanisms.
  4. Provided ongoing support and guidance to the client throughout the implementation process.
The implementation of these countertrade mechanisms yielded remarkable results:
  1. Increased revenue by 300%
  2. Improved profitability by 120%
  3. Enhanced brand reputation and customer loyalty
  4. Expanded market presence in 20 new countries
  5. Increased market share by 15%
  6. Attracted top talent and improved investor confidence
  7. Diversification opportunities and increased market influence
  8. Improved supply chain efficiency by 35%
