Following other markets globally, most notably in North America, where it’s been the industry leading solution in the US for the last 8+ years, CGA’s flagship service will now enable Beverage Alcohol Suppliers to track Canadian market share and trends within the industry for Spirits and Beer categories. Providing a comprehensive market read of manufacturer, categories, and brands, OPM is a statistically robust model of the sales of drinks in bars and restaurants; delivering reads on volume, value, distribution, and average price across products.
With limited visibility on sales performance nationally and in select provinces, OPM will bring light into the dark space of reporting, showing the channel’s true performance with sales out of bars and restaurants as opposed to what’s been shipped to accounts. The solution enables suppliers, manufacturers, and agencies alike to monitor market share, benchmark brands against competitors and identify new opportunities for growth in the market.
CGA by NIQ’s OPM Spirits database will be launching in December, followed by Beer in February 2024. Together, both databases will allow suppliers to view On Premise performance collectively across US and Canada in the same format, reporting across the same periods.
Mitch Stefani, Client Solutions Director – Americas said: “This launch represents a new beginning for the Canadian market, with beverage suppliers now being able to get a full view of their true market performance through comprehensive sales performance data. It represents a breakthrough moment for suppliers in Canada looking to identify performance nationally, whilst understanding the competitive landscape across all reporting provinces in the same format. Globally, OPM is the leading benchmark for On Premise measurement and is used by our major drink supplier partners to confidently win in the channel.”
