Sweden leads the transition to sustainable consumption

The consumer goods industry is facing increased uncertainty driven by global economic fluctuations and rapid climate change.

Swedish companies in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector are directly affected, whether they operate internationally or not. To navigate these challenges and increase resilience, a strategic plan for internationalisation is essential.

Key Factors:

  • Market Selection: Carefully choosing the right markets is crucial.
  • Entry Strategy: The timing and method of market entry impact success.
  • Technological Adaptation: Implement AI and update business models considering new sustainability regulations.
