The consumer basket in India has been adversely affected due to the high food inflation and weak macro environment. Rise in cost of production, input cost inflation and positive demand supply gap are the main drivers. However, easing commodity prices is expected to ease margin woes of FMCG companies. Since it’s quite a challenge for the retail industry to evolve with the developing markets on its own, start-ups can be the bridge between the traditional players and the new-age market. Start-ups enable more job opportunities thus not only helping the economy, but they are also helping FMCG players to consolidate their positions in their respective segments.
