Success Case Study: Brew Dog Beer: From underdog to craft beer top dog
Both a gap in the market and a government tax incentive in 2002, known as the progressive beer duty, have led to the emergence of many craft breweries around the UK. It is important for these companies to stay true to their roots as they grow, so as not to lose their consumer appeal. Key Findings • Resisting the temptation to sell their ownership to major conglomerates is one way craft brewers can maintain their individuality. • Using attention-grabbing PR and turning negative events into good publicity can help many start-ups in the beer segment show that they both have a sense of humor and are anti-establishment, which could appeal to the modern beer drinker who is weary of the more traditional offerings. • Small companies such as micro-breweries can hope to achieve strong

Global Executives Survey: Latest Factors Driving Change in Global Supply Chains
Globally, the majority of FMCG organizations operate supply chains in multiple countries. However, transportation costs, and long transit times or frequent delays are major challenges for companies operating international supply chains. Stronger ties with clients and suppliers, and greater access to suppliers and manufacturers are major advantages of a free-trade agreement for organizations. Additionally, to investigate the reliability of foreign suppliers organizations across regions prefer to physically visit suppliers. They are also aiming to seek out new suppliers rather than reduce them to support capacity expansion and supply chain improvement. The majority of companies across regions are looking to introduce a ‘next generation’ approach such as supply chains that are fast, flex
