Our client, a leading F&B manufacturer, was aiming to quadruple and diversify its revenues from Myanmar in the next 5 years. The Client had entered Myanmar in 2013 and although its top-line had seen significant growth, it was facing increasing competition from local players in its core sectors which accounted for >85% of its revenues. With Myanmar being a key growth market prioritized by the headquarter, the client was looking to quadruple its revenues in the next five years by expanding its product portfolio as well as strengthening its distribution network.

In addition, as the bulk of the client’s products were being channeled to tier-1 cities with a high competitive threat from more established local players competing based on lower-priced products, YCP Solidiance undertook a comprehensive regional assessment to identify potential distribution models based on product, geography and SKU types splits with a detailed assessment of each possible model to enable the client to identify the most effective distribution model to achieve its target market share and top-line growth. A detailed scenario analysis was also conducted to visualize the impact on revenue growth under different circumstances.
