Inclusive business refers to business that is profitable in nature but also contributes to poverty reduction. This is through the inclusion of the poor, disadvantaged, marginalized, or low-income communities in the value chain of the company. Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) companies have the possibility to create a positive impact on these communities by recognising their innovation potential as suppliers, producers, product designers, distributors, and retailers.
