Mars Recognized as Top Growth Leader within CPG Industry


At the Food Marketing Institute’s (FMI) 2016 Midwinter Executive Conference, Mars was recognized as one of the top five fastest growing consumer packaged goods companies. Compiled by Boston Consulting Group and IRI, this marks the second year that Mars made the annual “Top Growth Leaders” list, outranking all of Mars’ major competitors.

Tim LeBel, President of Sales for Mars Chocolate North America participated in a panel discussion at FMI to discuss Mars’ continued growth sharing that, “Mars is proud to partner with our consumers and retail customers to keep exceeding their expectations across all of our segments from chocolate and confectionery to food and petcare. We will continue to focus on bringing breakthrough innovation to all of our categories while also delivering brilliant execution on the iconic brands our fans love.”

At Mars, we believe that real growth – for our business, for our industry, for the economies in which we operate – will stem from mutuality. As an organization, we are keenly focused on driving value for all participants in our value chain. Whether it’s increasing our sustainability efforts to lessen our carbon footprint or investing $1 billion in our U.S. supply chain over the past five years, we will only grow if we do the right things to bring value to all of our stakeholders.
