Partners in Progress : Joint Presentations of Success Stories by Brands and Retailers
The evolution of modern trade has thrown up new challenges for the FMCG and food majors. While they love the space, the visibility and all the benefits that modern trade offers, and also have allocated resources towards this new order through dedicated supply chain management, in-store execution, category innovation, and joint business planning with retailers, they are often confronted with issues like margins, space, supplies, promotions etc.
Considering massive inflow of new products in to the market, retail shelf space allocation is as huge a challenge for retailers as it is for new/ innovative products to get on grocery store shelves.
How brands and retailers can work this out to see some great partnerships happening?
What have been the new experiments done by retailers to add more action on the shelves?
