Food, Personal, and Home Care Products Manufacturer
Rapidly Establishing Manufacturing Outsourcing Economics And Requirements At Family-owned Food, Personal, And Home Care Products Manufacturer

Conducted rapid operational due diligence to establish manufacturing outsourcing economics at a family-owned food, personal care, and home care products manufacturer. Gotham quickly:  built a bottom-up view of the target’s cost structure, current product costs, co-pack costs, and organization structure; conducted plant walkthrough and interviewed operations management; and interviewed companies in food and personal care products outsourcing. We established that outsourcing economics are slightly favorable as logistics and G&A would generate sufficient savings to more than offset a slight increase in food manufacturing cost. As our assessment indicated higher costs and risks associated with outsourcing food products, our client successfully pursued a restructured transaction of carving out personal and home care brands and products.

The company’s board wholeheartedly backed this end-vision and asked Gotham to help accelerate capture of these opportunities.
