The consultation of the "Etats généraux de la filière parfumerie-cosmétique" opened on June 1st, 2020. According to Cosmetic Valley, the period we are going through is unprecedented and constitutes a unique opportunity to finally take the time to reflect in depth on the issues and the future of the sector.
At the initiative of Cosmetic Valley, these general states are part of a desire for a collective dynamic in order to federate all the actors of the national ecosystem. "The Covid-19 pandemic caused an unprecedented crisis for the sector's economy and raised many questions. The post-Covid-19 period requires answers to these many questions, concrete steps to be taken and new models to be devised.the cluster says.
The consultation of the general states of the perfumery and cosmetic industry relies on a steering committee representative of the national ecosystem. To this end, it is composed of Febea, Cnep, CNRS, DGE, and includes SMEs, groups, and universities or training organizations. Online and participatory, the consultation aims to collect proposals from everyone and is aimed at the ecosystem of the sector in its diversity: manufacturers, entrepreneurs, researchers, teachers or students.
"From raw materials to distribution, including formulation, production and packaging, all companies in the industry are directly concerned. In this essential and common reflection, every voice matters, we emphasize at Cosmetic Valley. More than ever, the lessons to be learned from an exceptional crisis require collective thinking. This reflection will have to take into account issues as varied as environmental challenges, consumer changes and supply chain evolutions. It will also be an opportunity to question the " Made in France ", the relationship to work or the modernization of production tools."
In order to implement the consultation of the general states of the perfumery and cosmetics industry and to collect everyone's proposals, the platform https://eg2020.cosmetic-valley.com/ has been designed and is now available online. Through an anonymous questionnaire, the contributions concern ten or so themes: company financing, marketing, sales, export, innovation, regulations, production, supply, purchasing, human resources, quality, health and safety and environment. All the contributions will be included in a final report of the General Assembly, which will be sent to all participants.
