GMA's Industry Performance practice aims to enhance, understand and communicate the drivers behind the CPG industry’s participation in global commerce. Industry chief financial officers and financial professionals are brought together to advise GMA on financial issues, trends and business challenges in an ever-changing economic landscape.
Through partnerships with associate members, the group produces research and expertise aimed at understanding trends and changes in the marketplace to ensure continued fiscal success.
Each year, GMA partners with PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP to produce a financial performance report on the CPG industry. Now in its 14th year, the report is compiled from interviews with senior leadership of GMA members, including members of the GMA Chief Financial Officer Committee, publicly reported company financial data, government statistics, analyst reports, and other published material on 152 companies in the food, beverage and consumer products sector.
