Benchmarking helps you understand your category and how each retailer positions products within it.
With space at a premium, pricing at the forefront of everyone’s mind and some retailers opting to scale back on the number of brands it stocks within key categories, Assosia can help provide the data and statistics you need to ensure it’s your brands that do not lose out.
Assosia have been providing insight and analysis on the retail and fmcg market to clients and the industry for over six years.
Whilst the majority of our clients’ commission research exclusively for their own use, ensuring they receive only the data and reports they know will help them better plan their companies strategies, we can also offer consolidated programmes for those with a smaller budget.
Requirements for market data range from a snapshot of overall activity within a retailer, to full in-depth price and promotion tracking across key categories capturing thousands of individual sku’s.
Assosia also work with some of the worlds’ leading market research companies and consultancies, providing the initial data and resources to help deliver great availability and in-store promotional compliance.
The ever changing retail landscape, and the battle for new customers, has seen Assosia working even closer with key retail and manufacturer clients to provide insight and analysis across all retail channels, from the major multiples, discounters, cash & carry to the independents.

Our highly experienced field teams are capturing data across thousands of stores on a weekly basis, including the ranges stocked, on-shelf availability, space allocated to each category, promotional activity and new product launches/innovation.
Assosia provide both ad-hoc and ongoing initiatives for providing Retail Analysis insight and data, allowing our clients to commission one off projects to assist with range reviews and new product development, as well as more detailed ongoing price and promotional tracking activity on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
