Category: 4-letter acronyms[edit]

I replaced the category, as the category cannot be placed on the FMCG redirect page as suggested. As FMCG is indeed a 4-letter acronym, the category appellation is appropriate. Gjs238 15:15, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Extracted poorly written, unsourced paragraphs[edit]

I removed these one-and-a-half paragraphs from the end of the article, because they seem poorly written to me and the claims should provide some sources. (Wiki and comment tags added by me.) -- EdiTor [|a] 22:16, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

FMCG industry is innovative, full of rich experience, reaches world wide, people working with FMCG may get frequent opportunity to travel meet new culture, gets experience very quickly and chances to rise in status is much easier.[citation needed]

Unlike other sectors FMCG shares float in a steady manner irrespective of market dip world wide. (I already readded this one, altered and with "[citation needed]") .

Not Encyclopedic Quality[edit]

"There's a saying in the industry that goes "everyone has to eat." To this I would add "and wash their clothes and brush their teeth." Unlike some industries, such as automobiles, computers, and airlines, FMCG does not suffer from mass layoffs every time the economy starts to dip. You may put off buying a car, but you don't put off dinner. This lends FMCG a level of job security unknown in other industries."

This doesn't seem to be encyclopedic quality to me.

Is this exclusively Indian in usage?[edit]

There is only one source, an Indian textbook, and a large fraction of the incoming links are from articles related to Indian business. Is this term used anywhere outside of India? I (in the U.S.) have never heard of it, but I don't follow this industry closely. 121a0012 (talk) 04:46, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
