We finally got the 100% confirmation from the operator this morning! The brand will go on draught across the 150+ outlet estate and we just wanted to thank you for the superb response to the brief. We wouldn’t have got there without your support on this tender. For us, it demonstrates how far BrewDog and CGA have come in terms of our working relationship in the past year.

Bidfood has worked with CGA for a number of years and finds them to be a trusted insight provider. The data and insight CGA provides in relation to their Out of Home market knowledge adds value to our business.

Client Type: Drinks (International)

The customers my team and I call on in the National Accounts Universe are incredibly savvy, and rely on fact-based selling stories to warrant making a change either to their menu or to bring in another product into distribution. Working with Nielsen, we have been able to tell a robust, impactful story regarding our Espolon Tequila Brand. We uncovered that 96% of the volume driven by Espolon is coming from velocity proving Espolon is a true consumer Brand with incredible pull. Looking at this velocity vs. the competitive set within certain chain restaurants, Nielsen CGA predicted the value our Brand would generate to our customer’s bottom line.

This gives us an edge over our competitors, positioning Campari America as the ideal Supplier partner to our National Account Customers.

CGA has proved to be a collaborative and reliable research partner for Monin, helping support our marketing activities across European markets. As experts in the Out of Home Market and consumer research, their dedicated team crafted a bespoke consumer survey which answered our key research questions and the aims of the brief, while In-outlet intercepts added colour to the quantitative research. This has allowed us to understand our consumers, how they behave in the market and how Monin can market products to consumers in the most effective way. The actionable insight we received has also supported Monin in conversations with our customers and ensured we could refer to robust data we trust.

Client Type: Retail / Operator

Through online surveys, a series of focus groups and clever benchmarking, analysis and industry insight from CGA, we uncovered key focus points to attack.
