The retail environment is going through a period of rapid change. The landscape has become more incredibly competitive than ever, as there is no single formula to serve the specific needs of every customer.

This presentation will focus on how retailers are navigating the changing landscape and engaging the customer through actions such as:

• Using size and capacity to influence actions in other channels to create value for the customer;
• Strengthening digital capabilities to increase efficiency and convenience;
• Improving transparency of supply chain;

This speech will look at how these changing landscapes, and the actions mentioned above, are impacting the tissue paper products category.
