Key Sectors

One thing we know for sure, no two consumer products companies are the same. Different sectors encounter different problems. Our organization is structured to leverage our experience and training in order to solve your sector-specific needs.

Fast Moving Consumer Goods

Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies usually don’t have time to slow down to implement change. Working with Clarkston Consulting, you won’t have to decelerate while you innovate.

Food & Beverage

Very few sectors need to innovate as rapidly as food and beverage. With Clarkston Consulting as your business advisor, we can guide your organization from product discovery through new product launch.

Health & Beauty

While many health and beauty companies are marketing-driven, operational excellence should never be overlooked. We’ll help you improve your speed and agility in responding to consumers, while still executing flawlessly.

Specialty Retail

We understand specialty retailers are different from grocery or big box stores. But, you still need to keep up with your competitors while margins continue to erode. Clarkston Consulting will help you devise and implement the right strategy to compete and win.

Consumer Healthcare

Our decades of experience in the pharmaceutical industry means we understand FDA compliance better than anyone. Our decades of experiences in the consumer goods industry means we understand that compliance can’t stop innovation.  This makes us perfect advisors for that intersection of consumer healthcare companies.


Distribution has its unique challenges depending on the companies you service. From cold chain to three-tiered distribution, we understand how the distribution business works in consumer goods and can lead you in a winning direction.
