    Bonjour mes amis :)

    Was just wondering what "consumer packaged goods company" might translated into in French?

    I would guess "compagnie de produits de consommation pré-emballés.......??"

    Merci pour votre aide :D

    So which of the two should I go with, do you think? Are there any subtle differences?

    Thanks again for your help!

    "produits" probably fits better than "biens" in this context ( retail )

    "Produits" might fit better than "biens" (I think they're both okay) but Edwingill made a grammatical mistake:

    "Société de produits de consommation"

    BTW I've never heard in French "produits de consommation emballés"...

    Perhaps because this is because " conditionner " is used for "to package" in French commerce.
    Source : Wikipédia, " Packaging "

    Donc, société de produits de consommation conditionnés.
