Global Beverage Brand’s Competitor Monitoring

product and Retail Intelligence

Monitoring of client competitor products for silent formulation changes

Project Background

In response to the growing need for comprehensive competitor monitoring in the food industry, our client, a leading player in the market, engaged our global network of researchers to conduct periodic assessments of ingredient and nutritional changes in competitor products. The project covered multiple categories and locations across 30 countries in Europe, Asia, and North America, totalling over 600 stores and 4500 assessments. The objective was to capture subtle changes linked to the gradual reduction of key focus ingredients or ingredient substitutions.

Client Objectives

Our client sought to systematically monitor competitor products across various markets to capture ingredient and nutritional changes. They needed a structured approach to gather this information and gain key insights into market trends and competitor strategies.

Our Solution

Utilising our QualX technology, our researchers conducted on-the-ground assessments, capturing photographs of the front and back labels of competitor products in each market. Data was uploaded to an online portal, where it was cleaned, translated, and presented clearly.

The portal allowed the client to filter data based on market, category, product, and ingredient of interest. Our global network of researchers completed over 4500 assessments in more than 600 stores across 30 countries. Assessments focused on capturing ingredient and nutritional changes, with photographs of product labels providing detailed insights.
