Retail & Consumer Goods

Retailers and brands must juggle a large number of issues to ensure business continuity and performance. They must optimize profits by managing the costs associated with their supply chain and running their stores portfolio: this includes avoiding business disruptions by complying with regulations relating to the products they sell as well as their buildings and installations. 

Retailers and brands also seek to inspire trust in customers by supplying innovative and smart products of consistent quality, manufactured in factories that meet agreed social and environmental standards.


Support business continuity and improve performance and reputation


Bureau Veritas’ services for retailers have three goals: verifying compliance, safeguarding reputation, and boosting performance. We serve the needs of all retailers: traditional bricks-and-mortar and e-commerce.


We support business continuity by verifying compliance at every stage: assessing the solidity of new stores; verifying the safety of fire and electrical installations and carrying out independent testing and inspections throughout the supply chain.


To guard against issues relating to product safety, or negative publicity on how a product is manufactured, we provide retailers with testing, consulting and certification services. Our testing services provide retailers with confidence in the consistent quality of their products. Certification of quality and environmental management systems, and social audits of the supply chain help improve sustainability performance and avoid damage to reputation.

Finally, we offer a range of services to help retailers boost performance and access global markets. These include services to boost the performance of their stores portfolio, for example by reducing energy use, and by extending the life of the buildings through regular inspections. We also offer specialized supply chain services, including real time information on supplier performance to help retailers make rapid and informed supply chain decisions.
