What a year it has been!

A year when our friends in CPG went through the toughest disruptions ever. 

Like them, we faced tumultuous moments at Bizom. We braved through them, and built our resilience as we helped our customers to build their own resilience and continue growing their businesses. 

We also wrote a lot of newsletters and articles with business insights, created multiple reports on the impact of the COVID-19 on the market, and digged deeper into the performance of the CPG categories. Many leading publications including Economic TimesET PrimeBusiness StandardYourStory and others published our findings in their stories.

In our last newsletter of the year, we proud to bring to you the best of our stories in 2020. We are very grateful for your love and support. Thank you!
