2012 Consumer Packaged Goods Year In Review: Tier Two Manufacturers

Last month I review how Tier I companies (the Top 15 in CPG) saw zero growth, and in fact, very little change in sales at all. Of the 15, only one (Mondelez at +6%) had growth equal to or greater than the category average of +2%. Conversely, only two of the 15 had any meaningful declines, both at -2%. This month we look at the 60 Tier II companies in CPG, which I will define as non-Top 15, but greater than $1B in US-AOC sales for 2012. The story of these companies, that account for 28% of CPG sales, start to tell an interesting story about the ability of companies to drive meaningful sales in their business.
