Bart Becht.pngConsumer giant Reckitt Benckiser sell major brands in 200 countries around the world. CEO Bart Becht’s views on the current state of the retail market are therefore very troubling:

“In Europe, the situation continues to be very, very weak. In North America, it also continues to be rather weak. It is marginally better than it was maybe a couple of months ago, but it is not good enough in order to call it that we have a recovery. It is way too early for that.”
